All PBA teams test negative for COVID-19 after second round of tests


Teams inside the PBA bubble yielded negative results anew following the latest swab testing for COVID-19 administered by the Clark Development Corp (CDC).

A week after the action in the Philippine Cup kicked off, commissioner Willie Marcial disclosed members of the 12 ballclubs are negative of the virus following the second round of testing done last week.

Some players who were late entrees in the bubble however are still scheduled to be swab tested along with members of the PBA staff.

But Marcial is already grateful for all players, coaches, and team personnel for observing discipline and self-restraint in the three weeks since the league bubble began.

Swab testing is being administered every two weeks as per the strict health protocols crafted by the league.

The initial test was done when teams began arriving at the Clark Freeport last Sept. 28 and 29.

The negative outcome of the previous test paved the way for the successful restart of the Philippine Cup last Oct. 11 at the Smart 5G-powered Angeles University Foundation gym.
