Bong Go asks public to practice health guidelines despite IATF reco to relax face mask use

Sen. Go reiterated that face masks are still necessary especially when in close proximity with others.

Sen. Bong Go advised to the public to follow implemented health guidelines to avoid the further spread of the virus despite the recent recommendation of the Inter-Agency Task Force of Emerging Infectious Diseases to make wearing face masks outdoors or in open spaces voluntary. 

“Inirekomenda po ng Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases na gawing boluntaryo na ang pagsusuot ng face masks kapag nasa labas,” said Go. 

“Ayon po sa DOH ay ili-liberalize ang pagsusuot ng face mask sa labas para sa low-risk individuals at sa low risks settings. Binigyang-diin ng task force na ang implementasyon ay dapat gawin nang unti-unti para matiyak na protektado pa rin ang ating mga kababayan laban sa COVID-19,” he cited. 

The senator then reiterated that face masks are still necessary especially when in close proximity with others, to help curb the further spread of the virus.

“Pinag-aaralan naman yan at unti-unti naman tayong mag-a-adjust. Kung well-ventilated naman po ang lugar, voluntary na lang po ang pagsuot ng face mask,” Go said. 

“Kahit na payagan na tayong hindi magsuot ng masks habang nasa labas o sa mga ligtas na lugar, ugaliin pa rin nating maging responsable upang maproteksyunan ang sarili at ang ating komunidad laban sa anumang sakit o pangamba,” he added.
