Buffets remain prohibited under MGCQ

Buffets and self-service food bars are still not allowed while fast-food can resume in-store dining in areas under the modified general community quarantine.

Restaurants and fast-food chains in modified GCQ areas may resume dine-in up to 50 percent capacity, Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque said.

"Pinayagan na po ang dine-in operations pero hindi po nangangahulugang piyesta at inuman na. At sa ngayon po ang dine-in ay para lamang sa MGCQ," he said in a Palace press briefing.

"Sa pagset-up ng service station, walang buffet at self-service areas para sa food bar, condiments, at utensils," he added.

The modified GCQ is the transition point to the "new normal" or the full lifting of community quarantine measures.

Restaurants that will reopen must adhere to minimum health standards such as face masks, and physical distancing, he said.

Food establishments that will violate minimum health standards may be closed by the Department of Trade and Industry, Roque said.

Most parts of the country have shifted to a modified GCQ with the exemption of Metro Manila, Pangasinan province, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Central Visayas, Davao City, and Zamboanga City which are under GCQ.

Here are the complete guidelines on minimum health protocol for dine-in restaurants and fast food establishments:
