Legazpi Mayor Noel Rosal offers hotels as quarantine sites for a fee
Legazpi Mayor Noel Rosal said people arriving in Legazpi who need to undergo quarantine can use hotels for a fee if they want to.
In a Facebook post, Rosal said this alternative quarantine in an accredited hotel is an option for them while they wait for the results of their swab test for COVID 19.
They may have to stay there overnight or for two nights while waiting for the results, he said.
He also said the city has to be really careful in accepting arrivals because some of the returning stranded individuals and foreign workers had tested positive for COVID 19.
He also said hotels interested in joining the program could help by offering lower rates to help the arriving visitors or residents.
Testing and quarantine are a must!
