Free RT-PCR test for Roxas city residents

ROXAS CITY—In a special session of the Sangguniang Panlungsod Oct. 8, an ordinance on RT-PCR tests was approved.

The said ordinance provides for free testing for residents of Roxas City to be conducted inside Hortus Botanicus in Barangay Milibili here.

The laboratory which is a relocatable container was installed in early September.

The Roxas City Government has been pursuing to have its own RT-PCR laboratory so residents can get their results sooner.

Without the laboratory here, it could take days to get test results, officials say. (Ralph John Mijares)
