MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said this week that the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) has issued additional guidelines for all Filipinos to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Under the new guidelines, the wearing of headbands and sun visors will now be required whenever Filipinos leave their homes, regardless of what level of community quarantine they’re in. This is in addition to the wearing of face masks. Previously, protective gear was required only when people take public transportation or enter buildings, establishments and enclosed venues.
In a surprise inspection conducted by Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Debold Sinas in Divisoria, Metro Manila, he said that shoppers were pretty much following the new rules, as evidenced by the photo below.
