Mayor Benjamin Magalong issued on March 2 issued Executive Order 29 s. 2021 updating travel protocols for those entering the city pursuant to Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases Resolution 101-2021 imposing uniform traffic protocols in the country.
As per the entry guidelines, testing and travel authority will no longer be required but travelers will still have to register with the city’s online entry portals (visita.baguio.gov.ph for tourism and personal/leisure travels and hdf.baguio.gov.ph for returning Baguio residents and other traveler classifications).
Entrants will also have to undergo triage for health assessment. Triage 1 is located at the various checkpoints set up at the city’s main gateways while triage 2 is at the central triage unit at the Baguio Convention Center.
Travelers found to be symptomatic at triage will have to undergo RT-PCR testing and will be quarantined pending results.
It was emphasized that travelers must strictly comply with the public health standards to guard against the Covid-19 amid the eased up restrictions.
Traveler classifications are: Non-resident authorized persons outside residence (APOR) on official travel, government and private APOR who currently reside or work in Baguio and traveling daily or weekly through city borders on home-to-work and vice versa route, non-APOR residents returning to Baguio from personal, leisure, or non-work-related travels in other localities, returning Baguio resident, returning overseas Filipino workers and returning overseas Filipinos, those with medical purposes, drop and go travelers, and non-residents going to the city for personal/leisure or non-work related purposes.
Government agencies and instrumentalities providing emergency services or humanitarian aid during calamities will be afforded unhampered passage while cargo for essential and non-essential goods, logistics and delivery services and utilities for water, electricity, IT, telecommunications, fuel, and waste management will remain unhampered but may be subjected to random inspections by the Baguio City Police Office.  – Aileen P.
