COVID-19 restrictions in the province of Cavite will be further eased this December, Governor Jonvic Remulla said Wednesday.

The liquor ban was lifted Dec. 1 and there will be no limit for buying alcoholic drinks, Remulla said, noting that drinking in public places remains prohibited.

"Mga pare ko, pag may umangal na nag-iinuman sa lansangan, pasensya na ha. Minimum tolerance basta barkadang inuman ang mahuli ng ating mga kapulisan," he said in a Facebook post.

Mall hours in the province are also extended this December until 9 p.m. with customers allowed to enter until 8:30 p.m.

While Remulla initially said minors can go to malls as long as they are accompanied by their parents, he clarified on Friday that only those age 15 to 65 can enter such establishments.

While the provincial government has largely eased restrictions, Remulla reiterated that cockpits still cannot operate as cockfighting or "sabong" remains barred.

"Bawal pa rin yang mga beso beso, sayaw-sayaw, party-party, fiesta mentality, boodle fights … lalong lalo na ang pakikipagkamayan sa mga tao (matagal pa po ang kampanya so tigilan na muna yan)," Remulla said in his Facebook post.

Cavite, like most parts of the Philippines, is under modified general community quarantine until Dec. 31. This is the most relaxed in the country's four-step quarantine system.
