Motorcycle Barriers No Longer Required for Certain Riders


In the latest installment regarding those motorcycle barriers, the national task force for COVID-19 has said that they’re no longer required for as long as the riders are living in the same house, and that the place of residence is under General Community Quarantine or GCQ.

The Joint Task Force COVID Shield confirmed that that the national task force for COVID-19 approved this along with other measures for protocols regarding motorcycle back riding.

For areas under GCQ, riders not living in the same house must still have a pillion barrier installed, though the Angkas-style barrier that’s strapped to the back of front rider is good enough (not the unsafe and stupid one seen in the lead photo). Also, the back rider must be an APOR (Authorized Person Outside of Residence), while the front driver may not be. Both though should wear face masks and a full-face helmet (it has since been clarified as full-face visor). Oh, and the motorcycles must be privately owned.

For those areas under the more relaxed modified general community quarantine (MGCQ), local government units have the option to implement the said guidelines depending on the situation in their areas.
