Gwen Garcia: Let vaccinated foreigners in
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. (https://bit.ly/3enxs0R)
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.
