Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba said he will wait for the coronavirus disease (COVID19) vaccine to be publicly available before he allows minors to go to malls.
DTI earlier suggested to the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) to allow minors accompanied by parents to enter malls.
Mamba said children’s movement will be difficult to control while outdoors.
“Hindi advisable na ilagay natin sa maraming tao ang mga bata gaya sa simbahan o okasyon. Pasensya na lang. This is not the time,” he said.
“Tutal may bakuna na. Hintayin na natin yung bakuna kung kailan dadating sa atin pero matagal pa po yan,” Mamba added.
