All workers at the MRT-3 depot who returned to work after the Holy Week break tested negative for COVID-19.

The employees were subjected to antigen testing on Monday as they returned to the office after the five day shutdown, the MRT-3 management said in a statement on Facebook.

A total of 217 workers underwent the test, and they all yielded negative results, it said.

The testing requirement is meant to ensure the safety of the workers as well as the passengers of the railway, said OIC-General Manager and Director for Operations Michael Capati.

“Bahagi po ng standard operating procedures ng MRT-3 ngayong pandemic ang regular na testing ng ating mga empleyado. Dahil marami sa ating mga empleyado ay kagagaling lang sa probinsya dahil sa Holy Week, minarapat natin na isagawa itong antigen testing, para maprotektahan din ang nakasasalamuha nating mga pasahero,” Capati said.
