Pasay City said residents with close contact with coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) patients could avail of free swab tests, as the city grapples with a ballooning infection rate, according to a report by Manila Times.

Those who want to be tested must present a valid ID and a Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) number. Residents without a PhilHealth number will be asked to fill out a form at the vaccination site.

Swab testing will resume today, March 1 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. until March 5 at the Andres Bonifacio Elementary School and Malibay Plaza.
