  • DOT, IAFT Approve Expanded Indoor Seating in NCR Restos
  • Last week, the Department of Tourism (DOT) announced the approval of the expansion of indoor seating capacity in the National Capital Region restaurants.   

    According to the latest Inter-Agency Task Force resolution, indoor seating capacity is now allowed up to 20 percent seating and additional 10 percent for all establishments that have Safety Seal by the government.  

    Meanwhile, seating for outdoor dining remains at 30 percent but may increase by an additional 10 percent if the restaurant is also a Safety Seal recipient.

    In addition, Tourism chief Bernadette Romulo-Puyat encouraged the public to support DOT-accredited establishments for they are already fully vaccinated.  

    “We are confident with the cooperation of our tourism stakeholders — guests, workers, and hotel and restaurant operators — to ensure the safe reopening of restaurants to a higher number of guests by strictly observing the new seating capacity,” she said.

    At present, Metro Manila remains under Alert Level 4 until October 15.
