Three inbound travelers to Negros Occidental were rapid antigen test (RAT) reactive on Friday, February 4, Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz said.
They were among the 137 passengers who arrived on board five flights at the Bacolod-Silay Airport and on one boat who were tested.
On Thursday, one out of 139 inbound passengers tested was also reactive, he said.
Those who are reactive can opt to stay in a provincial government quarantine facility or go on home quarantine, he said.
The provincial government is conducting free antigen tests at ports of entry as a deterrent against the spread of COVID-19.
