Quarantine Updates


Hotels in places under GCQ and MGCQ now allowed to operate

Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat announced last Wednesday that hotels under general community quarantine and modified general community quarantine areas can now operate and accept guests at full capacity. This is to help give the tourism industry a kickstart. The decision to reopen, however, will still be up to the hotel management.

The Department of Tourism is set to give guidelines for the expanded capacities of hotels. Hotel Sales and Marketing Association president Christine Ibarreta expressed excitement over the resolution and assured that the hotels will strictly comply with the health and safety protocols that will be given by the DOT. Establishments that fail to adhere to the safety measures will have their licenses revoked. [1]
