Is Doane Rest open for guests during COVID-19?
Yes, we are open!
In order to visit, you need to fill out a bit of paperwork. For now, the following are the documents you need to either fill out or procure:
- Barangay Clearance
- Health Clearance/Medical Clearance Certificate (similar names for what we believe is the same thing)
- Travel Authority Pass from police
- Health Declaration Form (HDF) with Baguio City (link to external site)
(optional, but you never know when more paperwork might help)
NOTE: Your purpose for visiting Baguio will be religion/pilgrimage and your employment status will be unemployed/housewives/others.
DO NOT go to Visita or other places to register. The process above is for missionaries and others traveling for religious purposes. Going through other sources won’t allow you to register to visit Doane Rest.
We hope that this entire process will soon be simplified. As a consolation, check out our food page where you can see all of the options that deliver cooked meals and ingredients to Doane Rest!

Do you have equipment to keep us safe at Doane Rest?
Yes, we do. At our gate, we have a footbath, alcohol dispenser, thermal thermometer, and logbook. Upon entry, these items must be used to disinfect and log entry.
At your cottage, you will find an alcohol dispenser by the front door.
Inside, you will find extra disposable masks for each individual in your party, along with Lysol to disinfect items during your stay.
After each guest, we also disinfect all surfaces in our cottages, along with washing all linens and hanging things out in the sun for a few hours. According to studies, COVID-19 doesn’t like sunshine for extended periods of time. We are trying our best to make sure things are clean and safe for you, while also not giving you cancer in the process by using all kinds of crazy chemicals.
