The hotels are “back in business, but not business as usual,” the DOT said, referring to the amended guidelines for accommodation establishments issued by Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat.

Metro Manila residents who want to take “staycations” must present results of rapid antigen tests on the same day of check-in showing they tested negative of the new coronavirus. —Jerome Aning
