The Malacañang Palace says that street vendors, such as taho and balut vendors, will be allowed to resume work under the modified quarantine measures, as long as social distancing will be observed. This was mentioned by Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque in an interview with GMA Network's "Unang Hirit" on May 15.

According to a report by GMA News Online, when Roque was asked if street vendors will be allowed to resume work, he says, "Alam ninyo kasi kung pinapayagan na yung paglabas sa bahay para mag-exercise, tumakbo, magbisikleta, so sa tingin ko po pupuwede na basta huwag lang silang magkumpol-kumpol ... iyan po ang iniiwasan natin." (You know, if we are going to allow people to go out of the house to exercise, run, bike, I think we can allow [street vendors] as long as they do not form crowds...that's what we are avoiding.)
