Senior citizens whohave completed their COVID-19 vaccines can now go out of their homes in areas under general community quarantine (GCQ) and modified general community quarantine (MGCQ), Malacañang said Friday.

The Inter-Agency Task Force on pandemic response approved the easing of restrictions, requiring vaccinated senior citizens to present their duly issued COVID-19 vaccination card and observe minimum public health standards in establishments and public spaces, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said.

“The movement of fully vaccinated senior[s] is, however, limited to travel within their zone as interzonal travel is still prohibited except for point-to-point travel that was previously allowed," Roque said.

Senior citizens are second in the country's COVID-19 vaccination priority list, behind health workers.

Earlier this month, the government allowed leisure travel with no age restrictions for those in Metro Manila, Bulacan, Laguna, Cavite, and Rizal.
