Update: List of Green, Yellow, and Red-listed Countries from December 16 to 31, 2021

Just a few weeks ago, we opened our borders to a lot of countries, following the dramatic decrease in COVID-19 cases most parts of the world, including the Philippines. Finally, we can all move around once more and see friends and families we missed so dearly during the almost 2-year lockdowns.

Well, we spoke too soon.
