Except in emergency situations, not even guests of Boracay residents will be allowed to visit the island during its closure, according to general guidelines issued by authorities. The guidelines will form part of the inter-agency contingency plan that came up during the Regional Peace and Order Council 6 (RPOC-6)’s meeting on Wednesday for the island’s closure beginning April 26. Chief Supt. Cesar Hawthorne Binag, RPOC-6 chairman and Western Visayas police chief, said residents, workers and resort owners should be guided on what to expect for the duration of the shutdown.
