Tourism official remind travelers to observe strict healh and safety protocols during travel

Travelers must strictly adhere to the health and safety protocols amid the threat of the more transmissible Delta variant, according to the Department of Tourism (DOT) based on areas under general community quarantine (GCQ) and modified GCQ.

"Individuals of all ages may still pursue their travel plans, but needless to say, with the threat of the Delta variant, our travelers must practice extra caution and strictly adhere to the rules and guidelines of the LGU of destination," Tourism chief Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said in a statement.

"The Department is continuously looking for ways to further help the local tourism industry and its stakeholders get back on its feet as soon as possible but we remind everyone who wishes to travel for leisure to follow the imposed minimum health standards and social distancing measures," she added.

Under Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) Resolution No. 128, point-to-point travel is still allowed without age restrictions but subject with a reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test-before-travel requirement for those below 18 and above 65 years old.

Staycations may still continue without age restrictions but those unvaccinated and guests below 18 years old will have to undergo an RT-PCR test, DOT said.
