Tourism activities were suspended in Atok, Benguet for about 2 weeks as a precautionary measure against coronavirus disease (COVID-19). This tourism ban was lifted last Friday, February 21.
In an executive order issued on February 20, Atok Mayor Raymundo Sarac assured that local officials have adopted precautionary measures against coronavirus disease (COVID-19) to accommodate tourists in the town.
This follows a consultation with local health and tourism officials on the reopening of the town to tourists.
Tour site operators will be required to implement a pre-registration process to monitor and control the group of tourists. Registration will begin at Paoay Barangay Hall before proceeding to the tour sites.
The town of Atok is best known as home to numerous flower farms that tourists flock to for their picturesque quality. Among these flower farms are the Northern Blossom Flower Farm, the Sakura Farm, and the Haight’s Place.
