DOH: Cyclists no longer need to wear a face shield

The Department of Health (DOH) is said to be considering recommending that individuals riding bicycles should not wear face shields.

The public and health experts are concerned about the possible impact if even cyclists have to wear full face shields.

According to Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire, if cyclists are not comfortable wearing their face shield, they can remove it as long as they need to make sure they are alone and do not go to crowded places.

The health department is set to issue a joint administrative order for guidelines on the use of face shields.

National Task Force for COVID-19 chief implementer Secretary Carlito Galvez had earlier said that they would discuss the content of the guidelines.
