Hotels allowed to operate at full capacity
Hotels in areas under general community quarantine and modified GCQ will be allowed to operate at full capacity to allow the tourism industry to recover, Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said in a report by CNN Philippines.
The decision will be up to the hotel management, according to the Department of Tourism.
The Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases issued a resolution last week changing the provision that only allows accommodation establishments in GCQ areas to operate under a skeleton work force.
DOT is set to issue guidelines for the expanded operational capacity of hotels.
Several hotels in the country are currently being used as temporary quarantine facilities, while other hotels have been allowed to accept staycation bookings.
All parts of the country are either under GCQ or MGCQ, except some areas under localized lockdown due to spikes in COVID-19 cases.
