Bohol might reopen for tourism in October —Palace

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
