Hotels and other accommodation establishments in Baguio City were allowed to accept leisure travelers this month even as it remains under general community quarantine.
The IATF approved the request of the Baguio City government to accept tourists in consideration of a number of confirmed hotel bookings.
IATF Resolution 98 issued on Thursday read, “The request of Baguio City for its hotels and other establishments to accommodate travelers for leisure purposes while under GCQ classification subject to the observance of strict health protocols and contact tracing measures is granted.”
Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat had earlier endorsed Baguio’s request to the IATF.
Puyat said, “Given Baguio City’s visitor information, registration and contract tracing system and the assurance to undertake stricter measures to make it work, we objectively endorsed the request to the IATF for guidance.”
