IATF Now Requires Filipinos To Carry Measuring Tape At All Times

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In the interest of easing quarantine restrictions and slowly but surely moving the country towards the normal, the Inter-Agency Task Force On Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) has announced that the physical (social) distancing requirements between people  will be reduced from one meter to 0.75m to 0.5m and eventually to 0.3m.

But for every easing down of restrictions, there is a corresponding new rule to  make sure the objective is fully achieved.

Effective Monday, all Filipinos using public transportation must carry with them a measuring tape at all times to make sure that they are strictly following the required distance from the person next to them.

This is in addition of course to the required face mask and face shield, plus the helmet and barriers for motorcycle riders.

As the local saying goes, “advanced mag-isip” ang IATF. (The IATF thinks in advance.)
