Metro Manila reverts to outdoor ban on minors starting Wednesday — MMDA

THOSE below 18 years old in Metro Manila will be prohibited to go out of their homes starting on Wednesday as it continues to grapple with the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) surge, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said on Tuesday.

MMDA chief Benhur Abalos said only individuals from 18-65 years old will be allowed outside their residences as he encouraged everyone “to strictly observe and practice the minimum health protocols, and be extra careful and follow stringent measures particularly when around vulnerable family members, as there have been reports of transmission among family members”.

Metro Manila mayors had agreed to ease age restrictions in February in a bid to bolster economic activity.
