SAN JOSE DE BUENAVISTA, Antique — Resorts and hotels in this province can become isolation facilities for overseas Filipino workers (OFW) and locally stranded individuals (LSI).

But these companies will need the accreditation of the Department of Health (DoH) before they become one.

Department of Health-Antique team leader Dr. Feman Rene Autajay, however, said there is a need for more quarantine centers as there’s few in the area.

He added that they are now ready to certify interested resorts or hotels.

“So far there has been no resort or hotels that has come to our office asking for certification,” he said.

Most of the isolation centers in the province’s 18 towns are public schools.

The Department of Education has given local government units until 15 July 2020 to utilize their facilities to quarantine LSI and returning OFW.
