MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – GMA News is reporting that the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for Emerging Infectious Diseases has reinstated the ban on children 5 years old and above from leaving their homes.
The decision is a reversal of an earlier announcement to the contrary. So typical of IATF.
But the good news is that children 4 years old and below may now roam free since the IATF regulation did not mention them.
At the same time, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque clarified that in addition to children 5 years and above, adults who think and act like kids will also be covered by the home quarantine order.
That should ease road traffic, especially in the National Capital Region!
