The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) has recommended the voluntary wearing of face masks in outdoor areas nationwide. This was revealed by Press Secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles during the press briefing today. She also added that optional wearing of face masks was recommended in open spaces, non-crowded outdoor areas with good ventilation. However, the IATF highly encourages senior citizens and immunocompromised individuals to continue wearing their masks.

Accordingly, President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. who is in Singapore for a state visit has already given “verbal approval” to the IATF’s recommendation.
