Rizal Park will be open to the public again starting August 24 for exercise only, and not leisure, as Metro Manila’s general community quarantine nears expiry. The central section will be open 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. daily.
The National Parks Development Committee said new health protocols will be enforced to ensure the safety of visitors. Prior to entering, guests must check-in via Facebook Messenger or text message. Afterwards, a health declaration form accessible via QR code must be filled up.
Health protocols such as social distancing and wearing of masks will still be in place.
