Non-Cavite residents planning to go to Tagaytay for a break from the six-month-long quarantine still need to secure travel passes from their home local governments, JTF COVID-19 Shield head said Monday.
The head of Joint Task Force COVID-19 Shield, Lt. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar, was reacting to a statement from the Tagaytay City government that it would not require travel passes from tourists.
"Yung galing Metro Manila pag pupunta pong Cavite, dapat may reason ka ng pagpunta doon at kung hindi, dapat kukuha ka pa rin ng travel authority (If you're from Metro Manila, you need to explain why you will go to Cavite. If you don't have a valid reason, you need a travel authority.)," Eleazar told reporters.
Eleazar reiterated that only workers and authorized persons outside residence (APOR) are allowed to travel outside Metro Manila.
Since Tagaytay reopened its doors to local tourists, travelers have been flocking to the renowned holiday destination. Heavy traffic was experienced in the area due to the increase in motorists and private vehicles over the past week.
