Secretary Puyat also assured that the DOT will continue to provide technical assistance on product development, marketing promotions, skills training programs, as well as including quarantine hotel workers in the vaccination priority. 

The Department of Tourism chief also added that the DOT together with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) have aided misplaced tourism workers through the Cash Assistance Program, as mandated under the Bayanihan 2.
