MANILA, Philippines — Finally, the use of face shields is no longer required in areas under Alert Level 3 and lower, which at the moment includes Metro Manila.

President Rodrigo Duterte has approved nixing the mandatory use of face shields in areas under Alert Levels 1, 2, and 3, according to a memorandum issued by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea to the government’s pandemic task force.

The memorandum was issued on Monday, which was also confirmed by Medialdea to the media.

FEATURED STORIES

Metro Manila is currently under Alert Level 2 until Nov. 30.

However, face shields will remain mandatory in community settings for areas under Alert Level 5 — the highest classification in the government’s five-tier alert level system — and in areas placed under granular lockdowns.

For areas under Alert Level 4, local government units and private establishments have the discretion whether to still require the use of face shields or not.
