The Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases is now allowing leisure travel from NCR Plus bubble to areas under MGCQ until June 15 but only point-to-point travel with no side trips.

Those guest coming from outside of zones and jurisdiction particularly if coming from NCR Plus areas will be subjected to Strict protocols and restrictions imposed by the Local Goverment Units of the areas being visited.

Though establishments may accept travellers of all ages, guests below 18 years old and above 65 years old shall be required to present negative RT-PCR swab test results taken not more than 72 hours before check-in.

For establishments in GCQ areas, they can accomodate 30% of guests at any moment if guests are from the the same household. (ex. 5-member family that lives in one house).

Establishments need to get a CAOS (Certificate of Authority  to operate for Staycation) for them to accept group guests that are living in one household and can run at 100% capacity.

For areas under MGCQ, establishments can run at 100% provided that they will still continue to observe proper quarantine protocols.
