Tourism is the current focus of the Clark and Subic government as many tourism workers are getting vaccinated. The Department of Tourism (DOT) is ramping up its vaccination drive for tourism workers in Pampanga, Subic Bay Freeport Zones, Clark, Olongapo City, and Angeles City. Along with this, the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) released a public advisory that shows guidelines for those visiting the area.

Lockdown News: SBMA releases guidelines

SBMA released a public advisory that allows point-to-point (P2P) to Subic from areas under modified general community quarantine (MGCQ), general community quarantine (GCQ), and National Capital Region (NCR). All ages are allowed to visit, but several individuals need to present valid proof of their complete vaccination:

● Pregnant women
● Persons over 65 years old
● Persons with health conditions and comorbidities

In addition, guests must only get services from establishments accredited by DOT. All guests must also avoid co-mingling with other tourist groups to maintain proper social distance. Side trips are also prohibited, but stopovers are allowed as long as it is for emergencies, going to the restroom, and eating.

As for accommodations, leisure hotels can accept bookings for guests of all ages. However, those 14 years old and below are not allowed to visit other indoor establishments like duty-free shops, malls, and the likes. But they are free to visit al fresco restaurants, beaches, waterparks, theme parks, and playgrounds [1].

Travel Update: VaxCert now available for OFWs in Central Luzon

The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) launched the VaxCert PH, which serves as the nation’s digital vaccine certificate. Currently, it is only applicable to overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and other international passengers [2]. It serves as a more organized and more valid proof of vaccination information required for travel in different countries.

Pampanga residents can register for VaxCert in SM Clark for those who do not have a proper mobile phone or couldn’t download a digital certificate. Registrants must make sure that the information they input is valid and proper to avoid rectification. It should also be easy to access during travel.

More tourism workers are getting vaxxed in Central Luzon.

Many tourism workers in Pampanga are getting vaccinated as the DOT continues to ramp up its vaccination rollout, which is a step in the area’s tourism recovery. DOT completed its target of inoculating 3,109 tourism workers in A1 hotels all over Subic Bay Freeport Zones, Angeles City, Pampanga, Tarlac, Clark, and Olongapo City as of October 9 [3].

Since Pampanga is the Culinary Capital of the Philippines, it is one of the prioritized areas for the vaccination drive. In Pampanga alone, about 4,191 tourism workers were vaccinated, including those working under regular hotels, quarantine hotels, support services, and other tourism facilities. The vaccination rollout started last August 12, 2021, in San Fernando City.

Reports from Subic Bay Freeport Authority also indicate that five hotels and accommodations within the area have fully vaccinated all of its staff and employees. The following hotels include Subic Bay Travelers Hotel, Mansion Garden, Le Charme Suites, Bumble V Subic, and The Villas Moonbay Marina [4].
