Staycation Hotels Can Drop COVID Test Requirement: Roque

Hotels accredited for staycations by the Department of Tourism can forgo COVID-19 testing for guests and have been allowed to accommodate guests up to its full capacity, Malacañang said Friday.

Staycation hotels no longer have to require COVID-19 testing for accommodation as long as guests are limited to age 18 to 65, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said.

"Pinapayagan din ang staycation hotels na huwag ng ipa-COVID-19 ang mga guest basta sila ay nasa edad na 18 to 65 years old," he said.
