Labor chief Bello tests positive for COVID-19

This is to let the public know that Labor Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III has tested positive for COVID-19, but is asymptomatic and remains on top of his health.

Secretary Bello, who is fully vaccinated, is on self-quarantine at his hometown, Ilagan where the test was made on Saturday. Even while in isolation, the Secretary continues to discharge his functions.

Prior to contracting the virus, the Secretary has been receiving officials and guests at his office, and traveled to various parts of the country distributing assistance to displaced and disadvantaged formal and informal sector workers affected by the pandemic.

The Secretary wishes to thank the public for their prayers, and expresses hopes to resume leading DOLE officials in the distribution of assistance funds under its Serbisyong TUPAD as soon as his quarantine period is over.

He also reminds the public to always observe the minimum health protocols to help contain the COVID-19 pandemic. #
