Bohol was the first island province to implement a lockdown to prevent the entry and spread of COVID-19. That was back then and today, the island has re-emerged from her hibernation and has stirred back to life with most parts of the province slowly reopening to travel, trade and tourism.
Now, at a time when a premium is placed on health and safety, visitors would be delighted to know that Bohol is committed to the well-being of islanders and tourists alike with the strict implementation of health precautions and safety protocols, beginning with a negative RT-PCR test taken within 72 hours upon entry to Bohol.
