THE Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) had just allowed horse-racing activities to resume in areas under modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ), says Malacañang.
In a statement, presidential spokesperson Harry Roque, however, clarified that the resumption of its operation does not cover the physical presence of audiences.
“In addition, only online and TeleBet activities in NCR Plus [areas] may operate. Off-tracking betting stations, on the other hand, may resume operations during general community quarantine or modified GCQ,” Roque said.
The IATF also approved the guidelines on point-to-point air travel for leisure purposes from NCR Plus areas (Metro Manila, Bulacan, Rizal, Laguna, and Cavite).
“You can now visit the tourist spots but it will be point-to-point,” he added.
