(SPOT.ph) Baguio City in Benguet saw an influx of tourists over the holidays, especially since they've been open to tourists of all ages from entire Luzon since October 22, 2020. But the holiday destination also saw "an increase in mortality rate, and the rate of infection and transmission among minors" in the last three weeks, according to mayor Benjamin Magalong. With this, the city is implementing a "strict observance of age-based stay-at-home restrictions" from January 19 to February 1. Travelers below 15 and above 65 years old can still enter Baguio, but are prohibited from leaving the hotel or any accommodation establishment unless for an emergency.
