Philippine tourism attache in the United States and Canada had reported that there's no cancellations of travel to the Philippines, although some had inquired on the thermal scanning and quarantine procedures to ensure the safety of the public.

Ace Durano for doing its best in pursuing opportunities to attract more visitors in the country.
