MANILA, Philippines — Classes in Tagaytay city will resume on Monday, January 27, Mayor Agnes Tolentino announced.

“Please be advised that upon the recommendation of the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, classes in the schools in Tagaytay city will resume on Monday, January 27, 2020,” Tolentino said Sunday in an advisory.


Tolentino said the local government will distribute face masks to all students.

The announcement came after the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) lowered the status of Taal Volcano which means that there is “decreased tendency towards hazardous eruption.”


Taal’s eruption last January 12 prompted the suspension of classes near the volcano and displacement of thousands of families from their homes.

Meanwhile, residents of Batangas towns in lockdown, except Agoncillo and Laurel, may now opt to return to their homes following the downgrade of Taal’s status.
