A year into COVID-19 and Cebu province has already encouraged local tourism. There were protocols in place when traveling from one city to another such as confirmed hotel accommodation, medical certificates, and the necessary face mask, face shield, and physical distancing.
Travelling has been difficult because of the pandemic. One might require tests, clearance from place of residence, acceptance letter from the place of destination, and quarantine (recently requirements have eased up). Not to mention the fear and anxiety that comes with traveling.
It has been seven months since the full-on COVID-19 response of the world through quarantine, ban, and restrictions. For most of us, we haven’t felt quite ourselves. But slowly, we are adapting to what is called the “New normal”.
2020 is such a downer. COVID-19 has affected everyone. No one was prepared. No one expected to probably last this long. In Cebu, the government has closed the airports and sea ports and we were placed under Enhance Community Quarantine starting March 27, 2020.
