Glenn is expected to make landfall beginning 10 a.m. Monday, August 6.

Rash Guard Now Mandatory At All Metro Manila Public Pools

C6543C59-F0FF-41B3-AC1A-3AA36913A4D7MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The ‘no-half-naked in public’ policy supported by the Duterte Administration is nothing new.  Local governments have instituted such ordinance way before Rodrigo Duterte became president. The City of San Juan, for instance, had passed a local ordinance way back in 2013.

Emboldened by the support of the President, many local governments in Metro Manila are taking this prohibition to a much higher standard.

City Councils are adding teeth to the law by prohibiting citizens — men and women — from wearing bikinis or skimpy one-piece swim suits. The new prohibition covers all public swimming pools.

The amended ordinance requires swimmers to wear rash guards.  A violation comes with a fine of P1,000 for the first offense, P5,000 for the second offense, and imprisonment of no more than 6 months for the third offense.

So the next time you swim in a public pool, be sure to come prim and proper.
