MANILA, Philippines — Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Metro Manila, St. Luke’s Medical Center (SLMC) will temporarily require COVID-19 swab test for all patients and their companions prior to their admission.

The new policy will be effective on March 29 in both SLMC hospitals in Quezon City and Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. Only one companion will be allowed per patient during the hospital stay.
