Starting Monday, April 12, there will now be a Saliva RT-PCR Testing in Sorsogon, the provincial government announced.

“Maglalagay ng Collection Site ang Philippine Red Cross sa Sorsogon Provincial Hospital para sa Saliva RT-PCR na magiging karagdagang opsyon ng mga kinakailangang sumailalim sa COVID-19 testing,” said the Capitol.

“Paalala ni SPH Chief of Hospital Dr. Robby Chacon na ang pangunahing confirmatory testing pa rin ay ang Swab-RT-PCR test na isinasagawa ng DOH sa mga suspected COVID-19 patients na naka-admit sa mga hospital facilities,” it added.

Meanwhile, those who will undergo Saliva RT-PCR testing are still required to follow health protocols such as home quarantine while awaiting for the results as well as the signing of contact tracing waiver of the Provincial Health office (PHO).
