Mayor Ramil del Rosario of Bagac on Monday met the 14 Punong Barangay (village chiefs) to brief them on new stringent health protocols to be implemented in this tourism hub municipality.
The mayor said he was very particular on checkpoints, points of entry, and exit to closely monitor the entry of non-Bagac residents who are required to submit swab test results.
He asked village chiefs to strictly monitor residents and non-residents who may be virus-carriers but no one knows the individual.
Strict implementation of minimum health protocols shall be applied to all, Del Rosario said.
Strict compliance with health protocols shall be applied to beach resorts requiring beachgoers to submit swab test results and medical certificates. Of the more than 50 beach resorts in Bagac, only eight were given accreditation by the Department of Tourism.
Armando Fajardo, who owns the Fajardo Beach Resort said on Monday that most beach resorts are poised to cease operation because of the strict protocols following the drastic increase in Covid-19 cases.
