More swab test inside bubble; activities back to normal after disinfection

CLARK FREEPORT–Barangay Ginebra guard LA Tenorio, some PBA staff and members of the media on Thursday underwent their second swab test as part of the tight health measures being implemented inside the bubble.   The procedure was done in a stricter manner a day after the league reported that a referee was found to be a “suspect case”of the deadly virus on his fourth RT-PCR test. Hours later, he came out negative on the antigen test administered upon his arrival at the mega quarantine facility in Capas, Tarlac.  Tenorio and the 14 other delegates had to wait in their respective rooms in Quest Hotel for their turn in the swab testing area.  Alaska and Blackwater also had a second round of test for the week after several players raised concern of having possible contact with the suspected case.  The RT-PCR testing is done to the entire 350-man delegation every two weeks to ensure the safety and integrity of the bubble.  Save for a few late arrivals, all players and staff of the 12 teams already tested negative on their second swab test in the bubble administered last week.  Meanwhile, the PBA has lifted the suspension of activities in the hotel following the full disinfection of facilities.  Swimming, jogging and gym workouts were allowed anew starting on Thursday afternoon. .....»»
