MANILA, Philippines — Minors are allowed to go on out-of-town trips with their families amid the strict quarantine restrictions being imposed to contain the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, Interior Secretary Eduardo Ao said Thursday.
In an interview with ABS-CBN’s Teleradyo, Ao said minors can be monitored easier by their guardians in this setting than in being inside shopping malls.
“Meron naman kasi tayong ano, for example ‘yung pamilya na gusto nyang magbakasyon, pumunta sa ganitong resort, pinayagan naman natin na kasama ‘yung minors dyan. ‘Yan ‘yung sinasabi nating pwede with parents kasi ang dali mong i-control kasi nga specific lang ‘yung lakad,”he said.
