Stranded Students Undergo Rapid Diagnostic Test upon Return to Butuan

LGUs should have rapid diagnostic testing in their area to easily combat COVID-19.

The city government assisted the return of stranded students from its neighboring LGUs.

To ensure the health condition of the students, the city government has established protocols to manage them against the threat of the virus.

Upon arriving in the city, they were provided with an orientation session related to the rapid diagnostic test that they have to take. They were also informed of the contact tracing protocols to be conducted by the BHERTS. The students also were strongly advised to undergo the 14-day home quarantine.
