Dine out safely during P3HA
Dine-ins at eateries officially resume today. If you’ve been following the news, F&B outlets are considered high-risk settings due to density and duration.
Following safe management measures will help cut down these risk factors.
This means only dine out in groups of 2, remove your mask only when eating and drinking, and promptly wear it back once you’re done.
