Bohol province might welcome tourists again next month, Malacañang said Monday.
“I understand Bohol might be opening soon, within the month of October, if I’m not mistaken. So unti-unti naman pong nagbubukas ang ating mga tourist spots,” presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said in a televised briefing.
World-famous Boracay island and Baguio City will also reopen their doors to tourists in October under strict health protocols. Baguio, however, will only accept tourists from Region 1 for the meantime.
The Palace earlier called for a safe reopening of the tourism industry amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
It emphasized that there must be proper and close coordination between the national government and the local government units regarding the implementation of health and safety protocols when traveling. —Virgil Lopez/KBK, GMA News
