    Camiguin LGU intensifies health protocols for tourists, establishments

    CAMIGUIN (PIA)–To prevent a rise in cases of the coronavirus disease (COVID)-19 in Camiguin, the provincial government will implement heightened health and entry protocols for tourists and travelers bound for the province.

    A negative RT-PCR swab test result, confirmed hotel reservation, and vaccination certificate are now required for tourists traveling to Camiguin, Nykolsha Mae Rayos of the Provincial Government of Camiguin said in ‘Come Again Sa Camiguin’ radio program, January 20. 

    Inbound travelers staying with relatives will need to obtain certification from the Municipal Health Officer (MHO) that all members of the host family are fully vaccinated. 

    Both tourist types must also sign up for a CleanCamiguin QR account and accomplish the Health Declaration Form before or upon entry to the island. 

    The local government unit (LGU) also calls on lodging establishments and hotels to secure necessary permits to conduct business and take in guests. 

    “Kailangan kung mag-operate mo, mag-dawat mo’g tourists, naa mo’y license to operate gikan sa LGU (You must obtain a license from the LGU to operate and take in guests),” Rayos said. 

    Hotels and similar establishments in Camiguin must meet certain criteria to be granted a license such as having fully vaccinated staff, handwashing facilities, and isolation quarters for emergency cases. 

    Rayos said not only will this license make it easier for the LGU to conduct contact tracing, it will also serve as assurance for the people of Camiguin that these establishments are safe, clean, and are in compliance with minimum public health standards. 

    “At the end of the day, ang giprotektahan ani sa Provincial Government of Camiguin is atong constituents, atong mga turista, especially katong mga bata nga dili pa mga fully vaccinated,” Rayos said. 

    (At the end of the day, the Provincial Government of Camiguin only aims to protect its constituents, tourists, especially those children who are not yet fully vaccinated)

    Other preventive measures against COVID-19 have been implemented in Camiguin following the high alert level classifications of its neighboring provinces, including an order to regulate the movement of unvaccinated or partially vaccinated persons against COVID-19 signed by Gov. Jurdin Jesus Romualdo, January 24. (GDA/PIA-10/Camiguin)
