Hotel restaurants in areas under general community quarantine will be allowed to operate at 30 percent of their dine-in capacity on Monday, June 15, the Department of Tourism (DOT) confirmed on Saturday.
Partial dine-in operations are permitted in hotels and other accommodation businesses provided they strictly observe safety protocols, Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said in a statement.
A team composed of members of the DOT, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) will inspect establishments to monitor compliance.
The IATF-EID has adopted Talino Venture’s SafePass, a COVID-19 prevention and incident management platform for all businesses. The DOT is in coordination the DTI and Talino Venture Labs to provide digital solutions for DOT-accredited businesses to help them meet the technological demands of the new normal.
“Innovation is key to effectively implement and maintain health and safety protocols in their premises,” Puyat said.
“We can bounce back from our economic losses through our collective effort to ensure the health and safety of both employees and customers as more businesses gradually operate.”
