Tagaytay open for tourists again
On September 6, Cavite’s City Administrator Gregorio Monreal announced that the popular holiday destination is open for tourists again after being placed under Modified General Community Quarantine (MGCQ).
What you need to know
Under MGCQ, Restaurants and hotels may accept customers and clients up to 50% of their capacity according to the guidelines released by Tagaytay’s Mayor Agnes Tolentino on September 1. Businesses are allowed to operate as long as health protocols and standards are followed for both employees and guests, such as physical distancing, wearing protective equipment, and signing health declaration forms.
Ages 21 below and above 60, as well as pregnant women and individuals with health risks are still required to remain at home.
Do you need a travel pass?
Not if you’re from Cavite or surrounding areas under MGCQ. However, according to the latest reports, you do need a travel authority if you’re traveling from GCQ areas like NCR.
