The national coronavirus task force made this change to the Omnibus Guidelines through its 43rd resolution, said Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque on Thursday, June 4. "The old guidelines said every household member is allowed to leave their homes [under modified general community quarantine]. There was an amendment. In Resolution No. 43, it remains that youths aged 21 years old and below, seniors 60 years old and above, can't go out subject to exception of necessities and to work," said Roque in Filipino. A copy of the resolution can be found at the end of this article. Modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) is the phase after GCQ. During this phase, movie screenings, concerts, religious gatherings, sporting events, and non-essential work gatherings are allowed, as long as a 50% limit on venue capacity is observed. All types of business operations and establishments are allowed to open and face-to-face classes are allowed in schools.
