LAND Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB)-Central Visayas Director Eduardo Montealto Jr. clarified that the "No Face Shield, No Ride" policy will still be implemented starting August 15.
He clarified that the temporary suspension announced earlier refers only to the "effective immediately" order of the Department of Transportation (DOTr).
The DOTr released on August 4 Memorandum Circular 2020-014, requiring passengers of all public transportation to wear a face shield, aside from the face mask.
Based on the order signed by DOTr OIC Undersecretary for Administrative Service Artemio Tuazon Jr. last August 3, the mandatory wearing of face shield for all passengers in areas where public transportation is available will start on August 15. (HBL)
