Cordillera - "Baguio is in a good place because of its people", that was the statement of Baguio city mayor Benjie Magalong after the plan of opening  the city to tourists on September 22.

He emphasized that the local government of Baguio was able to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 because of the citizens who work  together with the government. 
"We were only able to manage the virus because Baguio residents worked with the government and supported measures we had set in place," Magalong said on Facebook post. 

The city is set to slowly test the waters of the new normal by reopening its tourism industry. 
"Covid-19 will never go away, hence we need to co-exist with it, we need to learn how to live with it, how to function with it and how to do business with it on our midst," Magalong said. 

On Friday (Sept. 19), Magalong was joined by National Action Plan Against Covid-19, Deputy Chief Implementer Sec. Vince Dizon. Presidential Spokesperson Sec. Harry Roque led the inspection of establishments along Session Road and the triage at the Baguio Convention Center before the city officially reopens to incoming tourists.

Magalong said that the decision to reopen the tourism industry was set because the people need jobs to sustain their lives and to prevent people from getting depressed due to the current pandemic.
