(SPOT.ph) It's only been less than a year since the Skate and BMX Park in Tagaytay City, Cavite was launched just in time for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games. But when community quarantine was imposed in the country by March, the facility was just one of the many places that had to temporarily close. Now that the province of Cavite is under modified general community quarantine, the Skate and BMX Park is finally open again with limited daily hours, from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.


Guidelines for areas under modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) were detailed in a memorandum by Tagaytay city mayor Agnes Tolentino released September 1. Both the Tagaytay City Oval and Skate and BMX Park are allowed to reopen, provided that they accommodate only 50% capacity of the sports facilities. The guidelines apply beginning September 1.

For the city and the rest of the province, minimum public health standards should be followed. This includes proper wearing of face mask and face shield, persons below 21 years old and over 60 years old are still not allowed to go out unless for obtaining essential services and goods, and barangays and the city shall still maintain checkpoints. Public transportation are permitted to operate at 50% capacity, while private vehicles traveling to and from Tagaytay City are allowed.

Crossing between Metro Manila and provinces is still prohibited, according to Lt. Gen Guillermo Eleazar, Joint Task Force COVID Shield commander in a report by Reportr unless you're an essential worker, locally stranded individual, or traveling for emergency purposes. This policy is implemented while the National Capital Region is under general community quarantine until September 30.
