MANILA, Philippines — The Inter-Agency Task Force against COVID-19 has approved gradual reopening of dine-in services of restaurants in areas under the general community quarantine (GCQ). 

Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez announced that starting June 15, restaurants may allow dine-in services limited to 30 percent dining capacity. 

Lopez said the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) already issued safety protocols last week to allow food establishments to prepare for the resumption of dine-in services in their respective businesses. 

These protocols include placement of markings to ensure 1.5 meter distance between diners.

There should also be acrylic or clear glass partitions installed to separate diners.

The DTI will conduct random checking of all food establishments once they reopen to ensure compliance to the agency’s protocols.
