NCR Plus (Metro Manila, Bulacan, Rizal, Cavite, Laguna) residents wanting to go on leisure trips can now do so, but only going to areas with general community quarantine (GCQ) and modified GCQ status, according to a high-ranking government official.
During a press briefing, presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said the government decided to ease restrictions with regard to domestic travel, a decision that covers all ages, and will be in effect until mid-June.
But such travel comes with a condition — that all the travelers test negative for COVID-19 and will comply with local government guidelines.
The travel, he added, will also have to be point-to-point, meaning no stopovers.
The government has also allowed outdoor non-contact sports, 30 percent operating capacity for venue meetings or conferences, 40 percent operating capacity for personal care services, and 30 percent for outdoor tourist attractions for areas under GCQ with heightened restrictions, including Metro Manila.
