PHOTOS: Here's What Malls Looked Like on Day 1 of MECQ

Check out how new mall guidelines are being implemented.

As the Metro transitions to modified enhanced community quarantine today, May 16, malls in Metro Manila began to reopen to the public—but not without health and safety guidelines. Major malls like Robinsons Malls,  Ayala Malls, SM Supermalls, and Megaworld Lifestyle Malls have all enforced a no mask, no entry rule as well as mandatory temperature checks in all entrances. 

Other protocols include regular sanitation of high-touch areas, implementation of proper physical distancing, and more.
