La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda said the municipal inter-agency task force for the management of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases is not yet recommending the gradual reopening of tourist sites in the town.
The Benguet politiko made the remark after concerned sectors expressed their opposition to the move.
Salda also pointed out that there is a continuous increase in the coronavirus disease (COVID19) cases in La Trinidad.
But he lamented how the pandemic has severely impacted tourism industry.
Salda called on stakeholders to understand the situation and cooperate with authorities.
