Stricter rules backed vs new virus variant
by PNA

The Department of Tourism expressed support to the implementation of more stringent entry protocols in view of the confirmed new Covid-19 variant.

“While we favor the resumption of inbound travel to stimulate economic recovery, we value above all else the health and safety of our people. In this light, we ask for the understanding and cooperation of inbound travelers in adhering to the measures put in place to ensure the protection of both guests and local communities,” Tourism Sec. Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said in a release.

The DOT has prepared health and safety guidelines for the following tourism enterprises to ensure the safe stay of visitors and protection of workers and host communities: attractions; restaurants; accommodation establishments; tourist land transport; travel and tour operations; tour guides; island and beach destinations; dive establishments; staycation hotels; spa; and meetings, incentives, convention, and exhibition facilities.

“We put our full trust in our frontliners at the international ports of entry as well as in our local government units to strictly carry out these measures at borders and triage points,” Romulo-Puyat said.

She also called for close cooperation among tourism destination managers, enterprises and host communities in reinforcing the minimum health and safety standards in their respective areas, including the 14-day quarantine in hotels that serve as quarantine facilities.

The Philippines banned “all foreign travelers” from the areas where the new Covid-19 strain is detected.

These countries and areas include the United  Kingdom, Denmark, Ireland, Japan, Australia, Israel, The Netherlands, Hong Kong, Switzerland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Lebanon, Singapore, Sweden, South Korea, South Africa, Canada, and Spain.
