More swab tests conducted among close contacts of COVID patients
Personnel of the City Health Office were deployed in the different barangays to conduct and gather swab samples of close contacts of COVID positive patients.
Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo lauded the health workers and other frontliners for their diligence and fortitude in performing their tasks despite the risks to ensure that those who are possible carriers of the virus will be isolated and given medical intervention.
City Health Officer Dr. Maria Sarah B. Talla said that the swab samples gathered will be sent for RT-PCR testing in Cebu. Until the negative results are received or they complete the quarantine period without ILI, none of them will be allowed to leave their homes including the members of their families. Food packs and other medicine were provided to the quarantined families.
Mayor Remollo also expressed gratitude to the barangay officials and law enforcement agencies for imposing the lockdown and the cooperation of the affected families.
