Presidential aspirant Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and his running mate, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, asked their supporters in Metro Manila Saturday (January 1) to defer holding caravans since the capital has been placed under Alert Level 3.

A group of Marcos-Duterte supporters is set to hold a unity caravan in Caloocan City on January 2 but they have been asked to push it back to a later date.

Malacañang on Friday (December 31) announced Metro Manila will be placed under Alert Level 3 amid a spike in COVID-19 cases.

“The safety of everyone is of paramount importance to us. That is why we are advising all our supporters to exercise self restraint in their political mobilization plans in compliance with the IATF decision. We are also appealing to our supporters to suspend mass gatherings and obey the guidelines under the Alert level 3,” Marcos and Duterte said in a statement.

Under Alert Level 3, cinemas and other businesses will only operate at 30% indoor venue capacity for fully vaccinated persons and 50% outdoor venue capacity; while some activities considered to be ‘high-risk’ for transmission will not be allowed like face to face classes in primary education, contact sports, amusement parks, casinos, horseracing, cockfighting, and gathering of individuals not from the same household.
