Children are prohibited from entering shopping malls in Cavite this Christmas month, Governor Jonvic Remulla said Friday after he initially announced that kids could be allowed in such establishments.

Only those aged 15 to 65 can go to shopping malls, Remulla clarified, as he apologized for his earlier announcement.

"I  was wrong to be too enthusiastic in the resumption of personal freedom for the people of Cavite. I take full responsibility and I apologize," the governor said in a Facebook post.

"Ang kagustuhan ko lang naman ay mapagbigyan ang mga kabataan na matagal nang naka-bartolina sa bahay. Makaramdam man lang sana ng kaunting saya ang mga bata na makapasyal ngayong kapaskuhan kasama ang buong pamilya. Hindi pala puede," he said.
