Baguio continues to fight the pandemic while keeping people indoors and closing famous tourist spots.


Like numerous areas in the country, the City of Baguio is still placed under extended enhanced community quarantine. The summer capital that is usually filled with visitors and tourists from different places in the world now lie empty. Even famous tourist spots in Baguio and around the province are quiet, since most of them have been temporarily closed following the ECQ guidelines. If you’re curious to know the status of tourist spots in Baguio, then read on below.


Baguio City Considered High-Risk


The City of Pines is one of the areas in Luzon considered as a high-risk area. The city will still be under enhanced community quarantine and all ECQ rules will still be maintained. All entries to Baguio shall also be limited to people authorized by the Interagency Task Force for Emerging Diseases and the local COVID-19 IATF, those with essential travel purposes including food and medical supply movement, health workers, and medical emergencies, and returning Overseas Filipino Workers in coordination with OWWA.


Tourist Spots Closed Since ECQ


The City of Pines is arguably one of the best and most well-known tourist spots in the country. However, due to the global pandemic and the quarantine that prohibits mass gatherings, Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong signed an executive order that temporarily closed some of Baguio’s famous places. These include Burnham Park, Mines View Park, Wright Park, and Botanical Garden. Bars, KTVs, movie houses, recreational centers, spas, and other establishments that are usually filled with people were closed down as well.



Teachers Camp Converted into Isolation Facility


Not all famous spots have been closed. Teacher’s Camp, one of Baguio’s popular tourist spots, was turned into an isolation facility for migrant workers who are returning home to the province. It houses a total of 129 beds, and OFWs are expected to stay within the premises for quarantine before being allowed to go to their respective homes.
