Edgar Labella wants Cebuanos to step up and get a free test for COVID-19


Cebu City’s mass testing drive is finally taking shape.

From limited tests, Mayor Edgar Labella now wants all Cebuanos who are feeling symptoms of the disease or think they came in contact with a positive patient to visit the new swabbing center in the city to get a free COVID-19 test.

“The City has taken on an aggressive campaign for mass testing in line with our efforts to control the spread of COVID-19 particularly in populous barangays,” the politiko said. “Swab testing is for free and open to all residents of Cebu.”

The facility, located at the IC3 building, is accepting everyone who think they need to get tested.

“Help the City Government ramp up its testing capacity. Mass testing is a crucial weapon against the pandemic,” Labella added.
