7 Play Areas And Pasyalan In The Metro Kids Can Exploreby Czainnah Gajito .
Metro Manila remains under COVID-19 Alert Level 2 until the end of November. With the more relaxed alert level, recreational areas that were closed for almost two years can now flip their signages to "We're Open" again.
We round up the play areas, museums, and other pasyalans with indoor facilities that announced the resumption of their operations. If you do decide to bring them to these places, bear in mind the basic health protocols that we still need to follow as the threat of COVID-19 is still present.
Keep your masks on, practice physical distancing, and make sure to wash and sanitize your hands as needed. It would also be best to ask the establishments about their safety protocols. (Read doctor's tips on how to protect kids against COVID-19 here)
As a last reminder, we echo Health Undersecretary Ma. Rosario Vergeire's statement: "Kapag nakita na natin na parang crowded na ang lugar, huwag na nating isama ang ating mga kabataan."
