TOURISTS will no longer be allowed at Kaybiang Tunnel starting on Friday, Cavite governor Jonvic Remulla announced on his Facebook page.

Remulla said the provincial government decided to bar tourists in the area due to the country's growing number of COVID-19 cases that are now reaching 6,000 per day.

Nonstop traffic at bottleneck mula entrance at exit ng tunnel,” Remulla said.
