Why allow youngsters in malls if they are banned from in-person classes?
Previously, only those aged between 15 and 65 were allowed to go out of their homes. But the inter-agency task force leading the country's pandemic response has authorized 10- to 14-year-olds to go out in areas under modified general community quarantine from Feb. 1.
Several million Filipinos are still unemployed and this figure might go up if sales in commercial establishments slump due to continued age-based restrictions, said Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez. Families account for 30 to 50 percent of the sales of commercial establishments, he told reporters in an online briefing.
"Napakaimportante na as a family, mapayagan naman silang lumabas," he said.(It is very important that they are allowed to go out as a family.)Lopez said the easing of age restrictions was not a choice between allowing children to go to malls and letting them return to in-person classes. headtopics.com
"Iyong pagpili nito is base talaga sa intensity ng interaction ng mga kabataan," he said. "Imagine po natin iyong intensity ng interaction ‘pag nasa eskuwelahan ang bata, tabi-tabi ang mga mag-aaral estudyante, constant interaction, mas hindi natin ho bantayan. And they spend so many hours in this kind of environment."
(Our choice is really based on the intensity of the interaction of the youth. Imagine the intensity of the interaction if they are at school, close together, they have constant interaction, we monitor them less.) Read more: ABS-CBN News Channel »
A Martial Law victim's story of healing
Hilda Narciso was among the female detainees repeatedly raped while in detention. She recalls how she moved forward from the nightmare that was Martial Law.
Because we dont spend whole days in malls sitting next to each other It can make sense pa rin if paramaters are explained. In malls, social distancing and other safety requirement can be implemented easily while very difficult in schools. Activities with interactions may still be controlled. Mental health of kids are also affected in the pandemic.
True Pera pera! Why? Because it’s becoming an excessive violation of our rights. IATF..... TRASH. In mall they are with their parents, in school they are not with them Bobo B/riones Nice photo Being at the mall doesn't mean kids are not studying, for sure it'll be weekend and with parents/guardians. Why make fuzz about it? May online school naman, tipid pa sa parents kasi walang baon needed justsaying ulit 👊🏻
Why not? At school they'll be sitting near to each other eh. They won't be able to practice social distancing while at mall they'll be guided by their parents, besides no kids are allowed to go to the mall diba? JustSaying Correct! Shunga ang DTI khit nuong seminar bago pandemya isang mema si lolo. Sana next na uupo sa ahensya yung maayos na.

Imagine the intensity of the interaction if they are at school, close together, they have constant interaction, we monitor them less. -Ramon Lopez
Yes! Exactly my question as a parent. Buti pa ang malls, tumatanggap na ng bata. Ang mga paaralan, hindi pa rin pwede. Priorities
