Motorcycle barriers are no longer required for riders living in the same house under a general community quarantine (GCQ) starting Wednesday, Joint Task Force COVID Shield commander Police Lieutenant General Guillermo Eleazar said Tuesday.

According to Eleazar, however, riders not living in the same household must have an IATF-approved motorcycle barrier.

Meanwhile, the backrider must be an authorized person outside of residence (APOR) while the driver may or may not be an APOR. Both riders must also wear full-face helmets and face masks.

The motorcycle must also be privately owned and not for hire.

Meanwhile, local chief executives of areas under a modified GCQ have the discretion to implement the GCQ guidelines based on their respective situations.

Some married couples and riders have previously opposed the requirement for a barrier between motorcycle drivers and back-riders to prevent coronavirus transmission.

Metro Manila and other provinces will revert to a GCQ from August 19 to August 31. -NB, GMA News
