The provincial government of Rizal is appealing for the public understanding as its COVID-19 testing facility at the Ynares Center compound in Antipolo City has been closed since Jan. 14, Friday, due to the growing cases of the coronavirus disease among its frontline personnel and healthcare workers.

In an announcement on Facebook, the office of Rizal Governor Rebecca Ynares said the Rizal Mega Testing Center at the Ynares Events Center will remain closed for disinfection until further notice as all of its personnel are under a mandatory isolation and quarantine.

The testing center has been offering free swab and antigen testing to both scheduled and walk-in individuals, residents and non-residents of the province.

The testing facility is located at the back of the Ynares Center and inside the compound where the provincial capitol is located.
