Guidelines on Mandatory COVID-19 Swab Test for ALL Patients, Companions and Visitors
We shall be implementing an updated guideline on mandatory COVID-19 RT-PCR SWAB TEST for Patients and Companions and Visitors effective April 1, 2022. This new directive shall ensure St. Luke's Medical Center as a safe place for all as the number of COVID-19 cases decrease and in response to a lower alert level (1 and 2) set by the government.
I. RT-PCR SWAB TESTING UPDATES
RT-PCR swab for ALL patients, companions, and visitors will NO longer be required except patients
who are SYMPTOMATIC or have had HIGH-RISK EXPOSURE within the last 14 days.
II. CONTACT TRACING PROTOCOL
If patients are exposed to COVID-19, please be reminded of the most recent contact tracing protocols, as mandated by the Inter-Agency Task Force and Department of Health memorandum as of April 1, 2022.

Despite the lowered alert levels, St. Luke's ensures that the hospital remains committed to maintaining its disinfection and sanitation protocols, most especially its outpatient and inpatient facilities. At St. Luke's, our patient's safety is our top priority.
