With our fight against COVID-19 getting closer to an end, more efforts are being poured by organizations around the globe and in our country to contain COVID-19.
As of July 13, 2020, the Bayanihan Cebu-DOH Swabbing Center officially opens with the goal of providing swab tests for those experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
This is in line with the national government’s thrust against COVID-19 with the tagline “Test, Trace and Treat”.
- Consists of 12 booths equipped with swabbing kits
- Medical techinicians or med-techs are from DOH
- Collecting the swabs and all specimens will be processed for free
Initially, the DOH has highly prioritized the frontliners and the high-risk population (those with underlying conditions, elderly, children, pregnant women, etc.), the DOH has included those in the subgroups B-F, as per their guidelines, but limited to those who are asymptomatic or with mild symptoms.
COVID-19 symptoms include high fever, cough, colds, sore throat, joint pains, diarrhea and loss of sense and smell taste.
Bayanihan Cebu also have calling centers for your convenience. Citizens can call the centers to set appointments for their tests, but walk-in patients are also accepted.
Note: Calling centers will be active starting July 14, 2020.
