The Sagada municipal government, in a Facebook post on July 6, clarified that the team of actor Piolo Pascual and Director Joyce Bernal was allowed to stay the night in the town.
This after reports that the actor’s team was barred from entering Sagada because of the coronavirus disease (COVID19) pandemic protocols.
Pascual and Bernal supposedly have permits from Malacañang to film in Sagada for President Rodrigo Dutere’s State of the Nation Address (SONA).
The Sagada municipal government said Bernal was apologetic.
“Direk Joyce clearly understood the decision of the body and she was apologetic,” they said.
“She appealed that they be given the night to rest in Cellar Door and to ensure that their vehicles are ready for the long trip back to Manila. The body agreed since they were already at the Cellar Door,” they added.
