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.
