As stated by Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque in a PTV 4 interview, the president has decided to retain the one-meter social distancing in public transportation including the required wearing of face shield and face mask.

“Panatilihin po muna ang one-meter social distancing na sasamahan ng pag-suot ng mask, ng face shield, bawal po ang salita at bawal po ang pagkain at pagsa-sanitize ng pampublikong transportasyon,” he stated.

Eating and speaking inside the premises of a public utility vehicle is still not allowed.

Previously, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) sectoral heads and officials began the implementation of the reduced physical distancing. From the advised 1-meter, it has been reduced to 0.75 meters extending it further to another 0.5 meters and 0.3 meters starting September 28 and October 12, 2020, respectively.
