    People have started buying their own swab test kits so they can monitor their households. They don’t want to get the DOH nor the LGU involved because if they turn out to be positive, they don’t want to be taken away to some dodgy quarantine facility or spend a lot of money doing their quarantine at some accredited hotel when most are just asymptomatic and they can just quarantine at home and isolate themselves in one room. So they buy these antigen kits to see if they’re reactive. If they are and exhibiting symptoms, that’s when they inform the LGU and they get swabbed with the RT PCR to validate their antigen results.

    I’m not selling the kits, but if any of you need them, a shop is selling them on Facebook. Yana Dumaguete. I recommend the brand Abbott for the nasal antigen. It’s the most accurate out of them all.

    In Bacong, barangays have an assigned health worker (not a nurse) and the community center has a health clinic. Dumaguete has a health center.

    Firstly, I think someone should check on your friend's behalf with the barangay and then possibly at the hospitals as he/she could be a spreader and should not go out if avoidable or unless medically approved.

    I understand that Provincial hospitals do this test free of charge - but your friend (or friend of) would have to check the local one. Failing that, the obvious ones would be SUMC, ACE (Daro), Doctors' (not sure of the full name) on the National Highway going from Dumaguete to Sibulan Market.
