Bohol – No quarantine for inbound travelers

Republika

While travelers entering the island province of Bohol still need to present a negative RT-PCR test taken three days before departure from their point of origin, they no longer need to submit to a five-day quarantine and a swab test on the fifth day.


Gov. Arthur Yap, who so ordered this last Tues, Sept. 7, told travelers to coordinate with their respective local government units in Bohol in order to get their Safe, Swift and Smart Passage (S-PaSS). This is a requirement for local travelers who are traveling to different locales in the province.


With S-PaSS, travelers can access information regarding travel restrictions imposed by different LGUs.


Despite the easing of the travel protocol, Yap enjoined public to keep to the minimum public health standards to prevent further spread of the virus.
Covid patient beds in Bohol have since reached critical levels, according to Provincial Health Office data.


Meanwhile, under the newly employed alert level system of quarantine classification, leisure travel is allowed subject to guidelines of local governments. Tourism secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat noted that some localities are already under the most lenient modified general community quarantine, but still do not accept tourists.
