In line with the Department of Tourism’s (DOT) priority effort to roll out its new health and safety standards as well as the Inter-Agency Task Force on the management of Emerging Infectious Disease (IATF-EID) restrictions among tourism stakeholders nationwide, the Local Government Unit (LGU) of San Juan, La Union recently conducted spot inspections among tourism stakeholders in its popular beach and surfing area and clamped down on enterprises that have violated national and local government issuances during the period of quarantine.

A local bar was temporarily closed by the LGU until such time minimum health and safety protocols were in place such as physical distancing and implementation of a local ordinance on noise pollution.

Meanwhile, Accommodation Establishments (AEs) were also inspected by the DOT in relation to their application for a Certificate of Authority to Operate as mandated by the IATF-EID.

“The DOT shall be at forefront and will be relentless in ensuring all stakeholders are ready when we reopen tourism by strictly adhering to our new guidelines for all sectors of the industry,” Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said in a statement.
