CEBU CITY, Philippines – The Naga City Government reopened its famous Boardwalk to non-residents in time for Christmas.

Chiong, however, stressed the need for visitors to comply with the city’s existing health protocols. These included proper wearing of face masks, avoid gatherings and frequent handwashing.

“Amidst COVID-19, let us enjoy the lights and sights, dine and take leisure walks with our loved ones,” said Chiong.

“Let us celebrate the coming of Jesus while at the same time not letting our guard down. Each one of us needs to be responsible and take the necessary precaution for the health and well-being of our parents, children, relatives, and friends,” she added.

Meanwhile, the city has also implemented a traffic scheme within the vicinity of the Boardwalk.
