Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia supports the call of Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Junard Chan to allow the entry of foreign tourists who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

Chan earlier appealed to the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases to allow foreigners to enter Lapu-Lapu City if they can show proof of completed Covid-19 vaccine and negative RT-PCR test.

“I am one with Mayor Ahong Chan because his tourism sector is really severely affected,” said Garcia. (

The governor added that she is willing to discuss the proposal further with Chan.

Meanwhile, Garcia said that all systems and protocols in managing Covid-19 cases in the province have already been set.

“We’re ready. Contact tracing is in place. We have isolation facilities. We even have protocols for home quarantine,” she stressed.
