PAGSANJAN, Laguna - The Pagsanjan municipal government recently reopened Pagsanjan Falls to tourists due to the continued drop in the number of Covid-19 cases and the designation of the entire province of Laguna as Alert Level 2.

The symbolic inauguration of tourism in Pagsanjan was led by Mayor Peter Casius 'Toto' Trinidad and Gov. Ramil Hernandez, along with several delegates from various offices.

“Unti-unti nating ibalik ang sigla ng turismo dito sa ating bayan at patuloy lamang natin ang pagtutulungan para mas mapagtagumpayan natin ang hamon ng pandemya na ito sa ating Bayan ng Pagsanjan,” said Mayor Peter Casius Trinidad.

For Hernandez, the opening of tourism in Pagsanjan will help bankers whose livelihoods have been affected due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Magandang balita po ito para sa mga kalalawigan nating bangkero na lubos na naapektuhan ang hanapbuhay dahil sa pandemya. Sa ating pagtutulungan at patuloy na pagsunod sa mga health protocols ay unti-unting makakabangon muli ang turismo sa buong lalawigan,” Hernandez said.

In this regard the local government has issued a guideline to ensure the safety and health of bankers and tourists against the still ongoing threat of the infectious disease Covid-19.

In accordance with the protocols of the Pagsanjan Inter-Agency Task Force and Executive Order No. 76 signed by Trinidad, bankers who will provide services to passengers and tourists must be ‘fully vaccinated’.

Only two passengers per boat will be allowed in accordance with the implemented physical distancing protocol while 10 boats per hour will be allowed to enter the farthest part of Pagsanjan Falls to properly monitor the number of people.

According to the law, people aged 65 and over can be allowed if they are fully vaccinated while those aged 18 and under are not yet allowed. Walk-in tourists will be allowed but they will be required to submit a health declaration form when they visit Pagsanjan Falls.

According to Trinidad, only up to 20 bankers will remain at the UBAP station which has also been designated as a place for the inspection of relevant documents such as vaccination cards or certificates as well as the checking of temperature and health declarations of passengers and tourists.

Tourist Police will also be deployed at the UBAP station to monitor the order of tourists, bankers and check the vaccination cards of passengers.

It is also required that all hotel establishments that receive tourists follow the guidelines set by the Department of Tourism such as having health declaration forms for all guests.

In this regard, Trinidad also called on the public to abide by the guidelines in place to ensure safety and order in the reopening of Pagsanjan Falls.

“Nakikiusap po kami sa inyong suporta, pakikiisa, at pakikipagtulungan upang masiguro natin ang kaligtasan at kaayusan ng bawat isa. Dalangin namin ang muling pagbangon ng industriya ng turismo para sa ating bayan, lalo na ang pagkakaroon ng hanapbuhay ng ating mga bangkero,” the mayor said.

The town government also provided a boat for some bankers in Pagsanjan Falls in support of their livelihood.
