MANILA, Philippines— Four guests of the Gubat sa Ciudad resort in Caloocan City have tested positive for COVID-19, the local government revealed Monday.

The Caloocan COVID-19 Command Center head Bok Labastilla said the four were found positive via the antigen tests and that only one of them is asymptomatic.


“Out of the four positives, one has been transferred to the quarantine facility,” Labastilla said in a statement. “The three are in the process of transfer.”

Caloocan City said 123 of the 287 identified guests of the resort were already contacted, their personal information verified.


Of the 123, 42 had undergone antigen tests and four of them were found COVID-positive. The local government said the remaining 80 will be swabbed “within today and tomorrow.”
