We moved out of a subdivision last year, and thank for the stars for it! We are literally just outside the concentration camp; sorry, the subdivision wire in a cul-de-sac.
The inmates of the subdivision have been subject to 5 o’clock curfews for weeks now, and they are allowed out during the day only according to their street addresses. [It may have improved for them since Monday.]
We have not been affected by any of this, and were able to move about pretty much as we liked.
We received application forms for quarantine passes two weeks ago, but didn’t get the actual passes until yesterday. Guards in the shops accepted copies of the application forms without demur anyway.
We still require the passes for shops etc, but although the application forms required age and dob, the passes don’t show them. And my hat, sunglasses, and mask disguise my advanced age quite well!

I think it depends where you are/live. Our province La Union has let the guards down as there have been no new cases for some time, other areas and the restrictions they implement are based on numbers and the continued health and prosperity of the residents and little else.
I still sit at home and Ben does the errands, I went out 2 weeks ago and won't bother again until the new normal sets in,,,,,,,, with the people.

Cheers, Steve.

There was some confusion on the alcohol ban here in Iloilo. The mayor of the city specifically said it was lifted but the governor of the province made no mention. People had to ask the governor if the province had a ban still. He said (as if it were common sense) he did not mention the alcohol ban, because there was no more ban... So it is ended here as well, again, for a while ha ha

We are in MGCQ and I cannot find if over 60 are allowed out or not. I am under 60, but am curious. I think it is all back to normal, but with social distancing, masks, and businesses at 50% capacity. I see old people out, but always did.

GCQ and higher levels of quarantine, over 60 only allowed out for essential reasons or to work in allowed occupations/industries.

MGCQ all are allowed out.

Today 4th June, they changed their minds again regarding the over 60's


IAFT Resolution No. 43


NOW

Under MGCQ
shall remain in their residence at all times

below 21 years old
60 YEARS AND ABOVE
ETC ….

Unless one can find an "excuse" to be out …. work, bank , medication etc one appears stuck in their residence for the foreseeable future.

It appears that there is no difference from ECQ to MECQ to GCQ to MGCQ for anyone over 60 years of age.
Is this the new normal for certain age groups?

John

Default over 60s

same here in Los Banos, Rules are still curfew at night,one person per home only allowed out, over 60s still unable to go to shops etc, only allowed out to get medicines and to visit doctors or hospitals.wife and her sister last week went to S&R , wasent stopped anywhere from Los banos to Calamba or Nuvali ! only rule was one person can enter S&R with membership card. they are going again tomorrow to buy some fans and to buy things such as washing soap and cleaning products in bulk. and soft drinks etc.
and hopefully some croissants !
as for rules on social distancing not much of it in our Barangay ! buiders still working,Meralco crews still working as normal Tricycles with more than 2 passengers etc. Knowing my luck if I was to walk out in the road without a face mask I would be arrested within 5 feet of our front gate ! but Im ok my wife looks after me , she buys me Fundador US Burgers and Flounders and Doughnuts and bakes me Cheesecakes and Cinnamon rolls and we are saving money as well !
