602 OFWs from Dubai and Barbados arrive in Philippines today


- Advertisment -

Another batch of returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) were welcomed at the Clark International Airport today, June 30, and were swabbed for COVID-19 testing upon arrival.

The 602 seafarers and land-based workers from Barbados and Dubai, were transported to designated hotels in Clark as part of quarantine protocols while waiting for their RT-PCR test results. They will be cleared to go home once they test negative.

The government, through the Test, Trace, and Treat strategy, remains committed to fast-tracking turnaround time for the release of test results within 2-3 days for the convenience of arriving OFWs.

The Clark airport reopened last June 5 to accommodate said arrivals.
