On September 22, President Rodrigo Duterte announced that face shields will not be required to be worn outdoors but only in areas that are identified as 3Cs.

The World Health Organization has defined the 3Cs as crowded places with many people nearby, close contact settings especially where people have close-range conversations, and confined and enclosed spaces with poor ventilation.
