Use of face shields now optional in NCR

A day after President Duterte announced the optional usage of face shields in Metro Manila and other areas under Alert Level 1 to Level 3, citizens freely pass by the sidewalk of Quezon City Elliptical Road with and without face shields on Tuesday, 16 November 2021.

In his pre-recorded speech, the Chief Executive stated that the general public can now do away with the use of face shields but must retain the wearing of face masks as the Covid-19 virus is still very much around although cases have significantly dropped in the National Capital Region.

Malacañang also issued a guideline under the Alert Level system for areas and the usage of face shields depending on alert levels.
