Breaking Cebu News! Ship with 200 OFWs docked in Cebu City Port
Earlier today, a ship carrying around 200 OFWs docked in our Cebu City Port. 58 of these OFWs are residents of Cebu City. The rest are from Mandaue City, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu Province and Bohol Province.
These OFWs have already finished their 14 days quarantine in Manila. They have been issued CLEAN BILLS OF HEALTH and were subjected to Rapid Testing before they departed. All tests returned NEGATIVE.
