Netizen Wayne Lacson shared a photo of the motorcycle barrier which he named “Barry.” He even described it as a “trustworthy friend.”

Wayne said he’s ‘mourning’ for the motorcycle barrier he bought for P1,250 that he only used for 17 days. He feels bad for the money he spent buying the barrier that is now considered useless.

“Nung nalaman ko na hindi na magagamit ‘yung barrier sa GCQ areas, pumasok bigla sa isip ko na wala nang silbi ‘yung barrier o parang ‘namatay’ na siya, na halos araw-araw kong gamit panghatid-sundo sa misis ko, kaya naisipan ko pong ipagtirik ng kandila ang P1,250 ko na barrier na 17 days ko lang nagamit,” Wayne said.

Early this week, the National Task Force on COVID-19 chaired by Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana approved the recommendation of Joint Task Force COVID Shield to allow people living in the same residence not to wear motorcycle barriers anymore. Married and living-in couples, family members and even people who are not related but live in the same residence will no longer be required to use the barriers.

For areas under the Modified GCQ, local government units are given the authority to implement their own rules on motorcycle pillion riding.
