The National Capital Region (NCR) further relaxed its quarantine classification to Alert Level 2 starting today, Friday, November 5. This will be in effect until Sunday, November 21. This comes barely a week since NCR shifted to Alert Level 3 in the new five-tier Alert system.

Under Alert Level 2, the following are allowed to operate, or be undertaken at a maximum of 50 percent indoor venue capacity for fully vaccinated individuals and those below 18 years of age, even if unvaccinated, and 70 percent outdoor venue capacity provided that workers of the said establishments are fully vaccinated against COVID-19:
  • Venues for meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE)
  • Permitted venues for social events (parties, wedding receptions, family reunions, and bridal or baby showers)
  • Visitor or tourist attractions (libraries, museums, galleries, parks, plazas, public gardens, scenic viewpoints)
  • Amusement parks or theme parks
  • Recreational venues (internet cafes, billiard halls, arcades, bowling alleys, swimming pools, and similar venues)
  • Cinemas and movie houses
  • Limited face-to-face or in-person classes for basic education subject to prior approval of the Office of the President
  • Limited face-to-face or in-person classes for higher education and for technical-vocational education and training
  • In-person religious gatherings; gatherings for necrological services, wakes, and funerals for COVID-19 cremains and non-COVID-19 deaths
  • Licensure or entrance/qualifying examinations and authorized specialty examinations
  • Dine-in services of food preparation establishments

  • Venues with live voice or wind-instrument performers and audiences (karaoke bars, clubs, concert halls, and theaters)
  • Gatherings in residences with individuals not belonging to the same household
The IATF also approved the recommendation of the sub-Technical Working Group on Data Analytics to base the alert level assignments on data that is nearest to the implementation date.

With that, starting December 1, 2021, alert level assignments shall be determined at every 15th and 30th of the month. Escalations, on the other hand, may be done at any time in the middle of the implementation period as warranted while de-escalations can only be done at the end of the two-week assessment period.
