In the NCR, Alert Level 2 is in effect to assist hotels in recouping losses caused by lockdowns.

The Philippine Hotel Owners Association (PHOA) applauded the government’s move to reduce the National Capital Region’s (NCR) quarantine classification from Alert Level 3 to Alert Level 2.

The association said in a statement that loosening the limitations will help the lodging industry recuperate lost revenue, especially as the Yuletide season approaches.

“The lockdowns imposed during prior surges of Covid-19 instances in the country have had a significant impact on the majority of our hotel members. As we commit to offering secure and convenient hotel services to our visitors, we expect the industry to restore its lost income in the last months of 2021,” stated PHOA president Arthur Lopez.

According to Lopez, the de-escalation will keep hotel staff employed and produce a domino effect that will help the hotel members’ suppliers.

The government has allowed staycations at housing businesses accredited by the Department of Tourism since the introduction of Alert Level 3 in Metro Manila.

From November 5 to November 21, Metro Manila is on Level 2 Alert.

Venues for meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE) have been authorized to operate at 50 percent capacity indoors and 70 percent capacity outside under the most recent classification.

“PHOA applauds the government’s efforts to keep the lodging industry afloat. Our hotel members, for their part, pledge to follow the safety norms and regulations established by various government organizations in order to ensure the safe reopening of the economy, particularly in the tourism business,” Lopez said.
