Rizal Park will no longer allow minors to visit the park to spare them from being part of the coronavirus statistics, according to a report by Daily Tribune.

Cecille Lorenzana Romero, Rizal Park Administrator, said although they allowed minors to roam around the park on Christmas Day, they decided to bar them from the park starting Saturday following a meeting of park officials and the Manila City Government.

She said a number of families trooped to the park on Christmas Day. Because of this, they decided not to provide children access to the park effective immediately, especially as there is a new strain of the coronavirus and that the number of cases in the country is now on the rise.

Romero said the park could accommodate 30,000 guests at the most. However, the social distancing restrictions limit the total number of visitors at one time to 2,000, providing them with plenty of space.

However, it was agreed upon not to allow minors entry for their health and safety.

The officials also decided to temporarily bar vendors entry into Luneta.

Last 25 Decmber, more than 4,000 persons were reported to have visited the park. Each was only allowed to enter Luneta after their temperatures were checked by guards at designated entrances.
In line with this, Romero said there will be no events at the park on New Year’s Eve, such as the traditional fireworks display, to prevent any mass gathering from occurring.

“We do not have any event for New Year’s Eve. It will be a quiet New Year at Luneta. No fireworks,” she explained.
