The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) has now allowed the reopening of gyms and other "indoor non-contact sports" within NCR plus areas. 

In a resolution posted on June 10, 2021, the IATF has approved the recommendations of the IATF Technical Working Group. 

"Indoor non-contact sports venues with Safety Seal Certification such as fitness studios, gyms, skating rinks, and racket sports courts in the National Capital Region Plus areas, shall be allowed to operate at thirty percent of their venue capacity," the Resolution mentioned. 

Historical sites and museums are also now allowed to reopen at twenty percent venue capacity, following the health and safety protocols given by the Department of Tourism, and also provided by the approval of the local government units where these sites are located. Guide tours are still prohibited. 

Likewise, the IATF has also given its green light to senior citizens who are fully vaccinated to go outside in areas under GCQ and MECQ.

They must present a duly issued COVID-19 vaccination card and still observe the minimum public health standards. 

The said movement of fully vaccinated senior citizens is, however, limited to travel within their zone as interzonal is still prohibited other than the point-to-point travel.
