    “We are hopeful that the DOH and the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-MEID) will consider the recommendations submitted to provide a guide for our citizenry who are eager to engage on outdoor activities again.” said Ramirez.

    Due to the present global health crisis, the PSC has decided to call off all the PSC-managed events and national sports competitions such as the country's hosting of the 10th Asean Para Games, Philippine National Games, Philippine Youth Games-Batang Pinoy, and the 2020 National Sports Summit, in compliance with the IATF guidelines.
