CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – The province of Camiguin on Thursday clarified that it is up to business owners on whether to enforce the "no booster, no entry" as part of the existing Covid-19 vaccination policy.

In a statement on Facebook, the provincial government made it clear that Gov. Xavier Jesus Romualdo only required the presentation of proof of inoculation for Covid-19's primary doses and one booster shot to venues or activities that are closely-knit and crowded.

"Among the examples that Governor Romualdo mentioned were barangay discos, live musical performances, tourism sites, and the upcoming Lanzones Festival (in the month of October)," it said.

Likewise, Romualdo did not include retail establishments such as grocery stores and supermarkets in the Covid-19 booster policy.

The provincial government released the statement in response to a statement made by shopping mall Gaisano City Camiguin that it continues to do business under normal operations without the "no booster, no entry" policy.

On Sept. 20, Romualdo and the Camiguin Tourism Association met with private businesses to review the existing Covid-19 protocols, and how these may be enhanced during the Lanzones Festival activities next month. (PNA)
