The local government of Navotas, under the leadership of Mayor Toby Tiangco, is offering free RT-PCR tests for COVID-19 for workers of companies based in the city.

Tiangco said it is important for workers to be tested for COVID-19, whether or not they are residents of Navotas, because they could infect others if they have the irus.

He said that while companies are willing to have their employees tested for COVID-19, they are daunted by the cost as an RT-PCR test could cost up to P8,000.

“Navotas, with the help of our national government, currently provides free swab tests to our residents. Companies are welcome to avail of this program for their employees, whether they are Navoteños or not,” Tiangco said.
