Muntinlupa limits students’ time in computer shops

Elementary and high school students and the youth can only spend a very limited time in computers shops in Muntinlupa.

This after the City council passed Ordinance 17-044 that restricts the use of computer shops by these students and requires owners including those in non-commercial establishments such as homes that rent out computer units, to regulate the scope of operation.

Under the local law, elementary students can only stay for one hour while high school students can spend up to three hours in computer shops in the city. College students are allowed to use computer shops without any time restriction.

The ordinance also prohibits computer shops from operating for 24 hours daily. They are only allowed to be open from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m.

Renters 17 years old and below will be allowed in computer shops until 9 p.m. unless they are accompanied by a parent under which they can extend their stay up to 2 a.m. (Jonathan Hicap)
