“From NAIA, OFWs will be brought to a government designated quarantine facility,” the statement read, noting that non-OFWs will be brought to an accredited hotel of the Department of Tourism, accommodation will be at their own expense.

“OFWs and non-OFWs shall stay in the facility/hotel until the test result is issued,” the comment added.

For those who tested negative and has been issued a certificate, they can leave hotel and go home to their residences to continue quarantine. The results of the PCR test will be posted online by the PCG:
