MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police (PNP) and the local government of Tagaytay yesterday vowed to work together to ensure the strict implementation of quarantine protocols in the city, which has reopened to tourists.

“Mayor Agnes Tolentino and I agreed to put things in order to ensure that the local police and the city government will not be overwhelmed by the possible influx of tourists in the coming days,” PNP deputy chief for administration Lt. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar said.

Eleazar, Joint Task Force COVID Shield commander, said Tagaytay could be a role model to other local government units (LGUs) on the reopening of their economy without sacrificing the gains in containing the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019.

He said he met with Tolentino to ensure that travel and quarantine protocols in Tagaytay are aligned with the guidelines set by the national government.

Eleazar said he assured Tolentino that LGUs have the discretion to find ways to revive their economy.

The PNP had earlier clarified that Tagaytay is open only to residents of areas under a more lenient modified general community quarantine. Those coming from Metro Manila and other areas under GCQ and stricter quarantine are required to present a travel pass.

Tolentino, for her part, gave assurance that they would cooperate with the national government in the implementation of quarantine protocols.
