MANILA, Philippines — The time period allowed for outdoor exercises in Metro Manila is now at the discretion of its local government units (LGUs), the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Benhur Abalos Jr.

“The Metro Manila LGUs, however, can set limitations on the movement or the time period of outdoor exercises in their jurisdiction based on their COVID-19 situation,” Abalos said in a statement.
