MANILA, Philippines — It is time to go for a vacation after a long period of lockdown, presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said Monday as he invited the public to visit the newly reopened Boracay.

“Ang mensahe po ng Presidente, kinakailangan mabuhay po tayo sa kabila ng COVID-19. Puwede naman po gawin yan sa pamamagitan ng pag-ingat sa ating mga buhay nang tayo po’y maghanapbuhay,” Roque said in an online briefing from Boracay.

“Panahon na po para tayo naman po ay magbakasyon matapos ang napakatagal na lockdown lalong lalo na sa Metro Manila. Nagaantay na po ang pinakamagandang beach sa buong mundo. Boracay, open for business,” he added.

Tourists need to present a negative result of reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction 48 to 72 hours prior to traveling to the island.

Travelers aged below 21 and above 60 years old are allowed to visit Boracay as long as they have no comorbidity or worse health conditions.

It was in June when Boracay Island reopened, but only for residents of Western Visayas.
