The government gave motorcycle riders until July 19 to install the barriers approved by the National Task Force against COVID-19.
Lieutenant General Guillermo Eleazar, Philippine National Police deputy chief for operations, said the barriers should be the same as the prototypes of the Bohol provincial government and motorcycle ride-hailing app Angkas.
Eleazar said the one-week grace period gave motorcycle owners enough time to set up the barriers.
During the period, policemen did not apprehend married couples, live-in partners, and members of the LGBTQ community living under one roof who are riding motorcycles without physical barriers because of the lack of public transportation due to COVID-19.
Eleazar urged motorcycle riders to strictly follow the approved designs of the barriers and existing rules on back-riding.
The prototype design of Bohol is attached to the motorcycle while the barrier of Angkas is worn by the rider.
