Does anyone anyone else read this to mean if one is under 21 or over 60, one is still permitted to engage in all activities and movements under other sections of these Guidelines such as those listed in Paragraph 4. c.

I drank another cup of coffee then read it a few more times.

I'm in a MGCQ area. I read/comprehend;

Paragraph 4. a. to mean all can still go to the mall for essential goods or services.

Paragraph 4. b. to mean below 21 and 60 and above are still permitted to engage in activities in Paragraph 4. c. and other sections of the guidelines.

So if 60 or older, one can go to the malls everyday for goods and services, swim in shark infested waters, ride wild horses, skateboard, jog/run amok through town, bicycle along dangerous highways but afterwards, must return to home confinement and in essence; return to ones rocking chair and gaze through the window at the outside world.

Or sit on Expat sites, I like your sense of humour Joe. I read it the same way but for us we are still limited to Wednesdays and Saturdays for some reason, our coding on number plate limits us to Saturdays though Ben goes out Wednesdays, was only pulled up once and argued the toss given C-19 coding should be put on the back burners for now.
All in all I'm having a good life.

Cheers, Steve.

I forgot to add; can still golf, play badminton or tennis until near death from heat stroke.

Yesterday, I went to Citi Hardware. The guards would not let me in because my mask was a double layered bandanna type. I pointed out 2 that had similar who were inside sitting on the white plastic benches.

Behind me along the Highway was a large PNP presence in a tent. I asked the guard that if I walked over to the police & they agreed that my mask was within the guidelines would they then let me in?

They watched as I walked to the PNP tent, several gave me the thumbs up, I walked back to the guards & they let me in.

It's troubling to read articles like this, then compare it to what Resolution 43 actually states.

I'm printing Resolution 43, will carry it with me while i go for a walk.

These masks don't fit me well at all and the ones that fit with the Army type design and real cool you can't breath in them all hand made items so I'm constantly looking for a cloth mask that allows easier breathing and will fit me but so far no luck so I don't blame you for using the bandanna.

We have the same issue with how alcohol is old in our area some municipalities require a liquor pass, well good thing I was able to get two cases of beer for myself and two bottles of wine for my wife in a different area.

And that's the Philippines, from top to bottom.

It's a not always easy for foreigners to learn, but that's the way it is: don't argue when someone says no, even if you feel they're wrong. Just find someone who will say yes.

I am afraid that the canceling of the passes in Cebu City is the prelude to a much stricter lockdown there after the current proclamation run out.

I just hope that they do not extend the same restrictions to the complete island because as far as I know, the cases are all in the city and not in the surrounding province.

However, since I have a pass, I can easily go for essential reasons and unless they go to MECQ I will not be able to go diving anyway so it will not make much difference to me.

I will make sure that by 1 July l will be stocked up and can go a couple weeks before needing to resupply.

Here in Iloilo our mayor just put out an EO to stop accepting LSIs from Cebu. All our new cases in the last couple weeks have been LSIs or repatriated OFWs. Someone needs to test them before allowing them to move. The mayor gave the reason as not allowing travel from ECQ to a MGCQ area. Makes sense to me
