Lagawe Mayor Martin Habawel Jr said people who want to spend the Christmas holidays in the town should come by December 5.
The Ifugao politiko said the municipal government will restrict entry of visitors to Lagawe starting December 6.
“The LGU will implement travel restrictions with a heavy heart, if only to minimize the (entry) of virus carriers in the community,” Habawel said.
He said they will prioritize overseas Filipino workers after December 6.
“After December 5, the municipal government will only be accepting a limited number of travelers from outside the province who intend to stay for good in Lagawe. We will prioritize repatriated overseas Filipino workers or returning OFWs,” he said.
