Religious gatherings allowed in areas under MECQ, GCQ

The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) has allowed the conduct of religious gatherings in areas placed under modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) and general community quarantine (GCQ).

Under the omnibus guidelines on the implementation of community quarantine in the country released on Friday, the last day before the transition, religious gatherings in areas under MECQ would be highly restricted and limited to not more than five persons.

While religious activities are not encouraged in areas placed under GCQ, the IATF-EID authorized such activities, so long as the maximum number of participants is 10.

People engaged in religious activities must observe minimum health standards.

Public gatherings that are “unauthorized, non-work essential, or are entertainment-related” remain prohibited in places where MECQ and GCQ are implemented.

In areas under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), mass gatherings are still prohibited.
