Cebu ends outdoor mask mandate

0 31

The use of face masks are no longer required in outdoor settings in the Province of Cebu.

Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia issued an executive order (EO) dated June 8, 2022 stating that “the wearing of face masks shall be required only in closed and/or air-conditioned spaces.”

The use of face masks will be optional on well-ventilated and open spaces, the directive added. (

The Capitol, however, “highly encourages” the public to wear facemask in crowded places.

Under the EO, those who are unwell and manifest symptoms of the Covid-19 such as fever, cough, or runny nose are required to wear mask at all times whenever they leave their homes.

“As a necessary step towards the new normal, there is a need to rationalize the requirement on wearing of masks,” said Garcia.
