Major tourist spots in Tagaytay now allowed to reopen under GCQ

The local government unit of Tagaytay allowed significant tourist spots in the city to reopen under the general community quarantine of GCQ status. Tagaytay City Mayor Agnes Tolentino issued Executive Order no. 372 Series of 2021, allowing popular attractions including People’s Park in the Sky, Tagaytay Picnic Grove, and SkyRanch to operate, provided that the amusement facilities in the parks remain non-operational.

On the other hand, restaurants, cafes, and other similar establishments within amusement parks may be allowed to operate but are subject to health protocols for indoor and al fresco dining services for GCQ. Social events will only be allowed 10% seating capacity of the venue, provided that it conducts indoors. [1]

Montemaria Shrine to become a COVID-19 isolation facility

In response to the government’s battle against COVID-19, the Montemaria Shrine located in Barangay Pagkilatan, Batangas, is set to become a COVID-19 isolation facility. Provincial Health Officer Dr. Rosvilinda Ozaeta said that three out of 17 storeys of the Montemaria International Pilgrimage and Conference Center would use for free, under Gov. DoDo Mandanas’ directive.

Ozaeta added that the facility received positive feedback upon inspection by the Department of Health (DOH). Its peaceful and relaxing ambiance was one of the many factors that made it a suitable isolation facility. The shrine targets 200 patients, and the local government will provide all the necessary equipment and food for all the medical personnel and patients. The authorities are only just waiting for the accreditation from DOH to fully transform the shrine into a temporary treatment monitoring facility. [2]
