MAYORS RULE TO KEEP BAN ON MINORS IN METRO MANILA MALLS

Metro Manila Development Authority General Manager Jojo Garcia said all 17 Metro Manila mayors decided on Wednesday to keep minors from entering malls, even if they are accompanied by their parents.

He said this was the decision of the local chief executives after the Philippine Pediatric Society recommended against allowing minors in malls.

“You will be surprised at how responsible our mayors are,” Garcia remarked.

Dr. Tony Leachon, former adviser to the country’s COVID-19 task force, said it was a good decision to listen to medical experts.

“It’s counterintuitive that proponents are loosening guidelines by allowing minors … to go out in the malls , when DOH raised red flag over surges in holiday season,” Leachon said in a tweet.

The Department of Health balked at the proposal to let minors in malls, which was first floated by Interior Secretary Eduardo Año, saying that children are not exempted from getting infected.
