Mayor Rivera commends CEB’s ‘test before boarding’ program


General Santos City Mayor Ronnel Rivera hailed the launching of the “Test Before Boarding” program of Cebu Pacific (CEB).

The local chief executive said the program is a big help to the local government unit in the fight against coronavirus disease.

“This program adds a layer of protection and comfort in our effort to identify people that are infected so we can isolate and treat them. As local chief executive, it’s my wish that this program succeeds,” he said.

“I commend CEB for coming up with this innovative program,” Rivera added.

The CEB and the local government partnered with the Philippine Airport Diagnostic Laboratory for the program, which was launched Thursday, December 3.
