Tourist Attractions, Resorts to re-open in Negros and Bacolod; Flights and hotel accommodations to be limited
After the 2-month long community lockdown and quarantine due to Covid-19 pandemic, Negros Island along with the lone district of Bacolod City will start to re-open tourist attractions and resorts this June 1, 2020.
The said guideline is yet to be signed by the President and the province but it promises to have these tourist spots and restaurants open with up to 50% customers capacity only (dine-in for resto) while practicing social distancing and wearing of masks.
The international airport of Silay-Bacolod is open but will only accommodate repatriated flights. The governor proposes to IATF to not allow commercial flights but allow repatriations for residents of Negros. This is yet to be approved by the president and the IATF.
For hotel, resort, and pension accommodations, the guidelines are yet to be finalized on how the province and city will limit the functions but allow them to operate for local tourists.
However, with the on-going operations of Covid-19 facilities in Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental, some resorts like the government-owned Mambukal Mountain Resort will be closed to public and tourists in order to accommodate repatriated OFWs and the incoming residents.
