The Taguig City government announced on Sept. 12 that it has adopted President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s Executive Order No. 3 mandating the voluntary use of face masks outdoors, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

Marcos issued EO No. 3 on Sept. 12, “allowing voluntary wearing of face masks in outdoor settings and reiterating the continued implementation of minimum public health standards during the state of public health emergency relative to the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Under Sec. 1, the order stated that “the voluntary wearing of face masks in open spaces and non-crowded outdoor areas with good ventilation, is hereby allowed, provided that not fully-vaccinated individuals, senior citizens and immunocompromised individuals are highly encouraged to wear their masks, and physical distancing will be observed at all times.”

It added that “face masks shall continue to be worn in indoor private or public establishments including in public transportation by land, air, or sea, and in outdoor settings where physical distancing cannot be maintained.”

The order stated that “minimum public health standards (MPHS) intended to effectively prevent and minimize the spread of Covid-19 in the country shall continue to be implemented consistent with the principles of shared accountability, evidence-based decision-making, socioeconomic equity and rights-based approach.”

“In this regard, the DOH [Department of Health] is directed to update the MPHS guidelines with the issuance of this Order. The DOH and the IATF [Inter-Agency Task Force] may submit recommendations for further adjustments in the MPHS, including the liberalization of indoor mask requirements, should the indicators for monitoring the status of Covid-19, such as vaccination rates and improvement in Covid-19 booster coverage, warrant the same,” the order added.

It directed all departments, agencies and instrumentalities of the government, including local government units, “to render full assistance to and cooperation with the IATF for the effective and orderly implementation of this Order.”
