1-METER DISTANCING TO BE ENFORCED IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT PENDING PRRD DECISION
Presidential spokesman Harry Roque said Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade issued the directive during a meeting of the government’s COVID-19 pandemic response task force regarding the matter.
The government earlier this week implemented a reduced physical distancing policy of 0.75 meters from 1 meter, citing supposed public clamor to ease distancing measures in public transport.
Roque on Wednesday said the President would decide on the physical distancing policy for public transport passengers after members of the government’s pandemic response task force failed to reach a consensus.
Duterte is expected to announce his decision on the issue on Monday, Roque said.
