Face shields now voluntary in Cebu

0 24

The use of face shields is now voluntary in Cebu Province.

This, after Governor Gwendolyn Garcia issued a memorandum on the face shield policy.

The memo, signed on November 19, was in line with a recent policy issued by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases Monday last week. (

The latest directive, however, allows business owners to require their clients and employees to wear face shields while inside their establishments.

“With regard to the voluntary use of face shields for areas under Alert Levels 3 to 1, it is hereby clarified that the same is without prejudice to employers still requiring their use for their employees/workers and/or customers in their respective premises,” the IATF’s new policy stated.

Cebu is currently under a more relaxed Alert Level 2.
