The public, even couples, should observe physical distancing when they are allowed to leave their homes to exercise as parts of the country start easing their coronavirus lockdown this weekend, Malacañang said Thursday. 

The less stringent general community quarantine, effective in low-risk areas from May 16, will allow the public to stroll, jog and bike outside their homes, said Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque. 

"Basta wala pong kumpol-kumpulan. Iyong mga mag-asawa po, kinakailangan maghiwalay kayo 'pag naglalakad. Temporary hiwalay muna iyong mga boyfriend... Wala munang holding hands habang naglalakad po," he told DZMM. 
(Just don't clump together. Husbands and wives should keep their distance while walking. Couples should stay apart. Don't hold hands while walking for now.) 

The GCQ will also allow non-contact sports like tennis, golf and badminton. Covered gymnasiums can open while fitness gyms are still barred, he said.
