The UP talipapa which also aims to support local entrepreneurs, is open to the public who are directed to follow health security protocols while shopping. Markers and guideposts are placed to ensure orderly navigation. Safe physical distancing, wearing of personal protective equipment and proper sanitation are strictly observed while going around UP Ikot and meet friends and familiar faces of the UP and Baguio community.
