Those who are 21 to 59 years old will be allowed to enter the malls provided that they present an ID, Roque said.

Temperature check, wearing of face masks and usage of alcohol will also be mandatory.

“Ililimita po ang numero ng tao sa loob ng mall (The number of people inside the mall will be limited),” Roque added.


To prevent people from loitering inside malls, Roque said air conditioning must be set at 26 degrees while free wifi must be removed.

“Tapos ang mall operations po, kinakailangan yung mga mall operators ay magbigay ng mask and gloves sa kanilang mga empleyado,” Roque added.
