Sto. Tomas residents get free antigen testing
Residents of Sto. Tomas town in Pampanga will be granted free antigen testing by the local government, according to Sto. Tomas Mayor Gloria Ronquillo.
In a Sun Star Pampanga report, the mayor said the testing site, located at the Bahay Pagbabago in Barangay San Vicente, will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. every Tuesday and Thursday from January 18 to January 27.
She said the program is available for all Tomasians, who must only present a valid identification card or any proof of residency in town.
“Basta Tomasians sila at may dalang ID or proof of residency, pwede sila maka-avail ng free antigen testing,” she said in the report.
Ronquillo said the program aims to address the rising number of Covid-19 cases in town by making the testing accessible to more people.
She also urged Tomasians, especially those manifesting symptoms of Covid-19, to avail themselves of the program.
“This is one of the Covid-19 response programs of the local government and we continue to ask for the cooperation of Thomasians so we can fight together the virus,” she said.
