It's official. Come May 16, less strict general community quarantine measures will be in effect in low-risk areas.

Yep, that means you can finally stretch your legs by taking walking, jogging, and even biking outside your house. Thinking about enjoying a sweet stroll with someone special? We're going to stop you right there.

During an interview, Roque urged the public to practice distancing. And, just because the lockdown is being relaxed, it doesn't mean couples are exempt from some distancing. According to Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, holding hands while walking should be avoided in the meantime.

"Basta wala pong kumpol-kumpulan. Iyong mga mag-asawa po, kinakailangan maghiwalay kayo 'pag naglalakad. Temporary hiwalay muna iyong mga boyfriend... wala munang holding hands habang naglalakad po," Roque told DZMM.

In more good news, the general community quarantine allows sports such as badminton, tennis, table tennis, and the like. Fitness facilities are also allowed to operate as long as the minimum safety requirements are followed.
