Mask restrictions in Cebu City would eventually be eased as the metro remains under Alert Level 1 until the end of June, Mayor Mike Rama said.

On Thursday, Rama said that he expected the city to maintain is alert level classification because the Covid-19 situation has not changed much over the past two weeks.

“That is no longer a matter as long as we are continuing vaccination on the way to liberation, and preventive medicine, including the wearing of face masks on a case-to-case basis,” the city mayor added. (
