Food courts in Araneta City in Quezon City will reopen on Monday, June 22, 2020.

In a statement, Araneta City said it will reopen food courts in its establishments in the area: Food Express in Gateway Mall, Food Gallery in Ali Mall, and Food Plaza in Farmers Plaza.

In the same statement, Araneta City said that the Roces–Pantranco route of Beep Jeeps will reopen on Monday.  "We're working on including more trips in the coming days," the statement said. Physical distancing measures will also be strictly implemented.

Araneta City had originally planned to reopen its UV Express hub as well, but canceled upon the news that the Department of Transportation will not push through with the re-deployment of UV Express units on Monday. 

"As we welcome back the public for their various daily activities, we are making sure that we put safety first here in the City of Firsts,"  said Antonio T. Mardo, senior vice president for operations at Araneta City.

"We continue to implement precautionary measures that comply with the directives of health experts and the government," he added.

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) over the weekend also announced that select public utility jeepneys (PUJs) will be allowed to ply 15 routes starting Monday, June 22, with 19 more routes given the green light for operations later this week. — Jon Viktor D.
