In the case where the tourist is symptomatic, he or she must undergo an Antigen Test with a corresponding fee of P3,500.00. If positive, they will be sent to the hotel holding room where they are booked. If they develop severe symptoms, they will be referred immediately to the Culion Sanitarium and General Hospital. If the test result is negative, the tourist can proceed to their hotel and itinerary.

All tourists must follow their confirmed itinerary and coordinate with the front desk officer of their hotel. They will be working hand-in-hand with the travel agency. All businesses, tourist boats, and destinations will only be strictly allowed to operate at 50% capacity. Face masks and face shields are also required at all times. And don’t forget to maintain physical distancing.
