Aklan orders temporary closure of Boracay resort after workers test positive for COVID-19

A luxury resort in Boracay will be temporarily closed after several workers tested positive for COVID-19.

Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa will be closed for 48 hours for disinfection after 16 employees were found positive for the virus.

The closure was initially slated for five days, but the resort management appealed for it to be shortened to 48 hours. Governor Florencio Miraflores granted the request on Saturday, Jan. 23.

Employees were pulled out of the resort while guests were moved to other hotels and resorts on the island. Others who opted for refunds and rebooking were also considered.

Meanwhile, the local government of Aklan is planning to have free RT-PCR tests administered to all hotel workers in Boracay. No dates and details regarding the tests have been released. — via Albert Rovic Tan / AdChoiceTV News
