OFWs tested negative for Covid-19 in Manila facilities to undergo 14-day home isolation


The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) is now enforcing home isolation for returning overseas Filipino workers (OFW) to their cities instead of isolating them in a facility.

DILG Secretary Eduardo Ano said that the local government units in the Philippines have agreed this new rule.

Those who tested negative for Covid-19 at the quarantine facility will be asked to undergo an additional 14-day home quarantine.

“All of our LGUs are already accepting OFWs as per your instruction. At first, they doubts because they are uncertain if these OFWs can infect others, so we had an agreement with all LGUs, mayors, governors that all of them will be accepted but they will impose an additional home quarantine,” Ano said.

Ano added that if their homes are congested, OFWs can be put in isolation facilities in their barangays ‘so that they are within reach of their families.

More than 12,000 OFWs are set to arrive in their respective home towns by May 30.
