Authorities in Manila have confirmed Covid-19 restrictions will remain in place until at least February due to a rise in new cases.
The Philippines.- The Philippines Task Force has decided to extend Level 3 Covid-19 restrictions until the end of January due to a rise in new cases. The restrictions were announced at the beginning of the new year after a rise in cases, including the detection of three local cases of the Omicron variant.
The government of The Philippines had previously decided to keep the country under Alert Level 2 until the end of last year.
Casinos will continue to operate but on a limited basis and only customers who have been fully vaccinated will be allowed to enter. Non-entertainment venues will be limited to 40 per cent indoor and 60 per cent indoor capacity.
If cases continue to rise and hit 71 per cent of healthcare services’ capacity, authorities could move the city to Level 4 Covid-19 restrictions in the short term.
