I suppose air travel is a grey area in terms of it being public transport but it seems strange that the announcement refers to the D.O.T's announcement which has since been superseded.  

No the 1st example of inconsistency we've seen!

Watch out, man! They'll get her for money laundering!

Remember the good old days when the only time you put your mask on was when you declared a hold up. I missed those days but now they are back. 

With the new rules coming in for public transport as well as my GF work building I decided to get a good shield which should cover future changes as they get more strict. She was not happy with the co

What's next?

First came the mandatory masks, then the goggles, and now face shields.

The only next step will be mandatory bio-hazard suits.

All kidding aside, I really did see some people wearing Hazmat suits as they were boarding flights at NAIA.

LTFRB amends memo to prohibit use of eye protectors in lieu of face shields

MANDAUE CITY, Cebu – The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) will proceed with the implementation of the mandatory wearing of face shields when taking public transportation starting on August 15.

But it will already prohibit the use of eyeshields or eye protectors based on  Memorandum Circular No. 2020-033 that was issued on Friday, August 7.

“As further clarified by DOTr, the requirement for face shield should cover the whole face,” said the memorandum that was signed by LTRFB Chairman Martin Delgra III.

READ: DOTr requires wearing of face shields in all PUVs starting Aug. 15

On August 1, LTRFB issued Memo Circular No. 2020-031 “setting forth the requirements for drivers, conductors, and passengers of Public Utility Vehicles.”

Two days later, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) issued Memorandum Circular No. 2020-014 “on the mandatory wearing of face shields (aside from face masks) for passengers in areas where public transportation is allowed.”

In consideration of the DOTr memo, the LTFRB board chaired by Delgra amended Memo Circular No. 2020-033 “to delete the portion allowing eye protector as an alternative to face shield.”

The new LTFRB memo will now “strictly require all drivers, conductors, and passengers of PUVs to wear face masks and face shields inside PUVs.”

“Failure to wear face masks and face shields shall be a reasonable ground to refuse/deny boarding in any PUV.”

“All issuances inconsistent herewith are hereby suspended and amended accordingly,” the memo added.

LTFRB said that the new memo will take effect starting on August 15 and after publication in a newspaper of general circulation.

So the government has flip-flopped again about this? One day the shields are required... the next day not... and the next day required again? This is like watching a tennis match...

I think they said that it was on hold until they sorted out the details which perhaps they have.
