If you do decide to physically go to your church, there are three rules we highly recommend you need to follow, whether your place of worship is in a GCQ or MGCQ barangay or municipality.
Rule #1 These people need to stay home.
If you are a senior citizen, sick (even if it's just a cold), or pregnant, you are encouraged to listen to mass on the radio or watch on television or social platforms. The same goes for your kids.
Rule #2 Wear face masks
All attendees are required to wear face masks. You do this as a courtesy to your fellow mass-goer.
Rule #3 Follow social distancing!
Please, please follow markers to ensure social distancing. If you don't believe in it, then best to watch a live streaming mass. And a nod to acknowledge your fellow mass-goer will do for the Sign of Peace. Avoid shaking hands.
Weekend routines, which were precious for families looking to spend quality time together, have been upended, no thanks to COVID-19. Movements have been restricted, especially in Metro Manila that has seen the most number of coronavirus cases to date. (For the latest update on the number of cases, click here.)
As much as we want to go back to "normal," the restrictions such as social distancing are necessary for everyone's health and safety. So let's do our part.
