The government of Bohol intends to only require a single negative RT-PCR test result issued 72 hours before arrival, waiving the need to undergo additional testing while already in the province, Provincial Administrator Kathyrin Pioquinto on Wednesday said.
According to Pioquinto, to amend the current entry protocols, Governor Art Yap will be issuing a new executive order.
“Wala pa ang EO, to be finalized palang—port of origin 72-hour PCR test,” Pioquinto said.
(There's no EO yet, it is currently being finalized-port of origin 72-hour PCR test)
Tourists who don't have a negative RT-PCR test result before departure will be tested upon arrival in Bohol.
Pioquinto noted that arriving travelers without a negative test result will undergo a swab test and will be put into quarantine by the local government.
The quarantine will last until a negative RT-PCR test result is released.
Currently, travelers who will stay in Bohol for more than three days will be required to undergo repeat testing on their fourth day.
The additional testing is done on top of the first test conducted prior to arrival or upon entry into the province.
