The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) suggested for on-ground classes to resume in September during a meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte aired on April 24, 2020.

IATF recommends 100 percent closure of all schools in areas considered as moderate to low-risk to put a halt on the spread of COVID-19. Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque further adds, “dahil po ang mga transmitters ay mga kabataang mula age zero to 20, lahat ng eskuwelahan i-consider po ang late opening sa Setyembre, except po sa online learning.”
