Statement by Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Poyat
In view of the recent unfortunate news that the AFP Chief of Staff has tested positive for COVID-19, I will pass on self-sufficiency as I was brought before them at a meeting on March 20.
Since I do not show any signs or symptoms, I will not do my own testing to save myself the limited supply of test kits for those who really need it.
By staying at home, I would not be in danger to anyone I contact. Protecting the people around me is my priority.
But that will not stop me from doing my job. We, in the Department of Tourism (DOT), have been working remotely since the launch of the Enhanced Community Quarantine. As of March 26, DOT has assisted 11,863 stranded passengers nationwide.
Our destinations will not refrain from fulfilling our duties to serve our tourists and stakeholders in this time of need.
