AFTER 15 months seeing just the four corners of their home, kids aged five years and older can now see how beautiful life is outside their homes.
The government has finally allowed children to go outdoors but only in areas under general community quarantine (GCQ) and modified general community quarantine (MGCQ).
Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque, in an announcement, however, clarified that the new guidelines do not cover those in areas under GCQ “with heightened restrictions,” which include Laguna and Cavite.
The Palace spokesperson said children aged five years old and above can now go to beaches, parks, playgrounds, outdoor tourism areas, biking and hiking trails, provided they are accompanied by adults.
Moreover, children falling under the new age bracket are also allowed by the government to engage in outdoor non-contact sports.
Interestingly, going to malls remains a no for children aged 15 and below.
