IATF allows 100-percent capacity operations under Alert Level 1

All establishments in areas under Alert Level 1 are now allowed to operate at 100-percent capacity, provided that those indoors or those participating in mass gatherings can provide proof of full vaccination.

This came after the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) amended over the weekend the country's guidelines on the Nationwide Implementation of Alert Level Systems for Covid-19, Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said Tuesday.

"The government pandemic task force recognizes the need to further identify the establishments and/or activities which are allowed to operate, or be undertaken in Alert Level 1," Andanar said.

On June 4, all 16 cities and one municipality in the National Capital Region (NCR) were announced to remain under Alert Level 1 from June 1 to 15.

Andanar said the IATF approved the recommendations of the sub-Technical Working Group for Data Analytics to clarify the alert level classification of provinces, highly urbanized cities (HUCs), independent component cities (ICCs), component cities, and municipalities from June 1 to 15, 2022.
