Wearing of face shield now required in public places

By Darryl John Esguerra  Reporter - INQUIRER.net 12:22 PM December 15, 2020


MANILA, Philippines — The Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) has required the public to wear both face shields and face masks at all times outside of their residences to stem the further spread of COVID-19.

Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque, who is also the official mouthpiece of the IATF, announced this in a televised Palace press briefing Tuesday.

The new directive amends the previous IATF order which requires people to wear face shields and face masks only when entering enclosed spaces or establishments such as malls.

Meanwhile, the wearing of face masks in public places was ordered mandatory since April.

As of Monday, there are 450,733 confirmed cases of COVID-19 nationwide, including 418,723 recoveries and 8,757 deaths.

Maybe a diving helmet, or scuba gear, might suit ..
