IN A bid to promote wellness and boost the economy, tourism has opened for the municipality of La Trinidad but with strict health protocols.
Valred Olsim, La Trinidad tourism officer, said visitors are required to practice minimum health standards and to pre-book their visits so that the establishments can manage arrivals with consideration to physical distancing and reduced carrying capacity.
Olsim said the valley has opened tourism for Baguio-Benguet residents and clients, as approved by the municipal Inter-Agency Task Force and in response to the growing calls to have avenues for mental health wellness, and to safely and gradually open up economy.
