The Inter-Agency Task Force on COVID-19 has approved the conduct of licensure exams from January to March 2021 as requested by the Professional Regulations Commission, its spokesman said.

Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque announced the IATF's decision alongside the relaxation of age-based quarantine restrictions. In areas under GCQ, children as young as 10 years old can now go outdoors.

Several examinations were postponed last year due lockdowns brought about by the pandemic.
