[VIDEO]: IATF recommends lifting of mandatory face mask rule outdoors
Complicated as Asbestos Lawyers
Filing an asbestos claim after the death of a family member is a complicated and time-sensitive process. The patient, or plaintiff, is typically the most important witness in the case against the defendants. But after the patient dies, they are no longer there to prove their exposure history or identify witnesses who can attest to their asbestos exposure. Asbestos lawyers can mitigate the process. Atty. Trixie just did something like that while explaining the country’s decision on mask mandate after the EO of Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama.
The Mayor’s Stand
Cebu City Mayor, Michael Rama did not need asbestos lawyers when he issued an Executive Order lifting the compulsory mask wearing in Cebu outdoors. He was confident that the city already knows how to handle Covid-19. The important thing for the tourist destination is to open up the economy in a safe way by making it optional to wear face masks outdoors.
AITF and the Palace’s Announcement
The Inter-Agency Task Force on COVID-19 recommends making the wearing of face masks outdoors voluntary. DOH OIC Maria Rosario Vergeire said that authorities are making a concept paper. This is on the pilot testing of the relaxed policy in selected areas. DILG Benhur Abalos confirmed the announcement.
