March 15, 2020

BAGUIO City -- Mayor  Benjamin B. Magalong yesterday said  as part of precautionary measures against COVID-19, the following parks will be closed temporarily for 14 days  beginning today --  the Children’s Park, Dominican Hill and Heritage Park, Mines View Park, Botanical Garden.

Special permits granted to concessionaires such as boating, biking, stalls, restaurants and roaving vendors within city parks are also temporarily suspended for 14 days.

“The temporary closure aims to discourage people from roaming and instead they should stay in their homes,” Magalong said.

Baguio travellers (residents, students, employees, visitors) coming from COVID-19 affected countries, provinces and cities including Metro Manila are required to submit themselves to the mandatory health protocols.
