After swabbing recently the 2nd batch of 371 market vendors and employees, that brings us to a total of 2,383 who cooperated with the COVID surveillance testing in our 3 major public markets (Central, Burgos, and Libertad).

Out of this 2,383, only 35 tested positive or a noteworthy low 1.47% positivity rate.

This impressive low figure means that our major markets are relatively safe and, as such, may elicit an enhanced trust and confidence from their daily customers.

To further ensure the safety and well-being of all those who come and patronize our major markets, the City DRRMO also disinfects these markets regularly every weekend.

We undertake these measures to ensure public health safety, revitalize the business prospects of our market vendors and provide more peace of mind and comfort for their customers.
