- A netizen posted about the continuous operations of travel groups to Batangas.
- The netizen emphasized the dangers of the group tours amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
As the health experts are trying their hardest to contain the virus and educate people about the importance of social distancing when it comes to COVID-19, a netizen posted about a lady looking for people to join their tour.
Ann Salas posted about a woman named Julie An who was actively looking for people to join their tour. The worse thing is, it was a “joiner tour” which means that those who will be in the van are potentially strangers to each other.
“She was able to push through with 2 full vans, sabi sa post minimum of 8 pax per van. And mind you, this is a JOINER TOUR. Meaning hindi po magkakakilala ang bawat kasama. Ang sabi ni Julie hindi na kailangan ng medical certificate, no documents needed siya na ang bahala,” Salas wrote on her post.
“Imagine traveling with complete strangers na hindi niyo alam ang travel history ng isa’t isa at walang testing na nagawa before and after the trip. Malamang sa malamang hindi rin ito nag quarantine pagkauwi.”
She added that those who joined the tours were from Metro Manila which is under GCQ and they went to Batangas, which is under MGCQ.
“Hindi allowed ang tiga Metro to travel for leisure sa Batangas. This is a violation of the mandated regulations of IATF.
“Alam kong kailangan niyong kumita, kailangan niyo na ng vitamin sea but to put your life and other people’s life in danger for a small amount?”

Salas updated hor post saying that Julie An doesn’t see the dangers of what she’s doing.
“Apparently joke time lang ito para kay Julie An, she doesn’t see saan siya nagkamali and nag eenjoy pa siya sa pinag gagawa niya. People have already reached out to me and they have been coordinated with the Batangas LGU, DOH, DOT and IATF. I hope maactionan itong irresponsibility nitong babaeng ito.”
There are currently more than 80,000 COVID-19 cases in the Philippines.
