Minimum public health standards should always be followed by all establishments, like the wearing of face masks, proper personal hygiene, and social distancing.

Movement and travel will still be limited even under GCQ. In the EO, those who are allowed to go out are those working people, who can provide company IDs, or those, who will be buying essential goods and services. For this purpose, any person allowed outside of the residence must have proof of document showing the purpose of travel such as quarantine pass or company ID, stated the EO.

Persons under 21 years old and those over 60 years old, and those vulnerable to the virus such as pregnant women are still mandated to stay in their respective houses unless the need arises for these individuals to go out of their homes.

Public transport is allowed except for jeepneys and multicabs, which will be needing a special permit issued by the Land Transportation Franchising Regulatory Board (LTFRB). As of the meantime, tricycles, buses, and TNVs are allowed to travel given that they too will follow the safety standards given by the city.

Border checkpoints will remain under GCQ.

Public gatherings such as concerts, cockpits, movie screenings, sporting events, and other entertainment activities and community assemblies are still prohibited. Religious gatherings are only limited to 10 persons until otherwise modified by the IATF.
