Earlier, Chan created the “Balik Turismo Task Force” that he headed, which would monitor the compliance of hotels and resorts in the implementation of the minimum health and safety protocols to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Chan also planned to appeal to the Department of Tourism (DOT) and Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), to allow minors and senior citizens to check-in in hotels.

“Mohangyo ta because they are a family. Inig check-in ana nila, siyempre kuyog gyud ang ilang mga lolo ug lola, ug mga anak,” Chan said.

(We will just politely appeal to them because they are a family. When they check in, of course, the Lolo and Lola and their children would accompany them.)
