The announcement came following a steady decline in the number of COVID-19 cases in the province.

Bohol Gov. Arthur Yap, in his Executive Order No. 52, said non-vaccinated and partially-vaccinated individuals shall present a valid negative swab test result taken not more than 72 hours prior to their departure to Bohol.
