消費活動促進狙いか 親同伴であればモールへの外出許可

外出制限が年末まで再度延長され、日本と異なり不要不急の外出要請ではなく禁じることのできるフィリピンでは長期間の移動・外出の制限は子供たちに大きな負担を与えている。
そんな中、ドゥテルテ大統領が15歳未満の未成年者でも親が同伴すればショッピングモールへの外出を許可すると発表した。限定的な家族のみでの集まりは認可されているので、クリスマスに向けてプレゼントを買い物にやってくるファミリーが増えることが予想される。

Kids with parents to be allowed in malls this Christmas season

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, December 1) — In the spirit of Christmas, children will soon be allowed in malls in areas under general community quarantine as long as they are accompanied by their parents, Interior Secretary Eduardo Año said on Monday.

Under the government’s existing COVID-19 guidelines, those aged under 15 and over 65 are prohibited from going out for non-essential travel. Año said gradual easing of age restrictions will be permitted in areas under GCQ, adding the relaxation of quarantine rules will be based on ordinances issued by mayors.

“Para na rin po sa Kapaskuhan ay doon po sa pinag-utos natin na puwede ng gradual expansion ng mga age group para makalabas, ang mga minors po basta accompanied ng mga magulang ay papayagang makalabas at makapunta sa mall,” he said during his televised meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte.

[Translation: For the Christmas season, we are allowing the gradual expansion of those allowed to go out. Minors, as long as they are accompanied by their parents, are allowed to go to malls.]
