Barkota Advisory (COVID 19)

Last Updated: May 22, 2020

We at Barkota, are one with the government’s directives in dealing with the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. As per the current announcement, some areas in the country are now under General Community Quarantine, while Cebu City is still under ECQ until May 31. Moreover, as of the moment, we are still waiting for the LGU’s directives and guidelines regarding ferry passenger trip resumptions as some of the areas under GCQ are still imposing travel ban.

In line with this, we are receiving inquiries regarding trip resumptions and travel updates for passenger ferry trips schedules. Moreover, passenger ferry trips for all routes of the following shipping lines will be temporarily cancelled until the end of the quarantine period and/or until further notice:
