NPDC said individuals who want to gain access to the park would have to check-in online.

“For everyone’s safety, we are implementing new health protocols. Guests are required to check-in with a QR code, FB Messenger or via SMS,” it added.

The NPDC also advised guests to apply for a QR code and entry requests ahead of time for a faster check-in process.

Entry requests are valid for one day for multiple entry and exit during the park’s operating hours, according to the committee.

Before this announcement, the promenade areas of the Luneta Park were closed for the duration of the modified enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila, which lapsed on August 18.
