SUBIC BAY FREEPORT –– A guest from Ifugao province who arrived in this freeport to attend a seminar has tested positive for coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Dr. Solomon Jacalne, public health and safety department manager of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority, on Wednesday, Jan. 27, said the guest was supposed to attend a seminar in Subic Bay Travelers Hotel and Event Center.


But the guest arrived in the freeport without a real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction or RT-PCR test result, Jacalne said in an advisory.

Jacalne said the guest was barred from entering the hotel and was sent to a designated quarantine hotel where he underwent a swab test.


The seminar was organized by the Department of Agrarian Reform, the Inquirer learned.

Jacalne said the guest was exposed to a virus-infected officemate.

The guest is no longer in the freeport after an ambulance fetched him from a quarantine hotel on Wednesday morning. INQ
