Barkota Advisory (COVID 19)

Last Updated: August 03, 2020

We at Barkota, are one with the government’s directives in dealing with the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. 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. Fortunately, there are some shipping lines that have already resumed trips for specific routes and are now available for booking.
