As the number of COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the country, hospitals and their medical staff have been struggling to accommodate patients—whether they are suspected to test positive for the virus or need treatment for other conditions. In an effort to decongest hospitals around the metro, local government units (LGUs) have been converting spaces such as schools and hotels to quarantine facilities as a way to better monitor suspected cases of COVID-19.

Due to its central location and proximity to the San Juan Medical Center, the city’s science high school had been converted into a quarantine facility for suspected COVID-19 cases. The building is also a “staging area,” meaning patients who have undergone testing will be asked to stay in this facility while waiting for results before they are admitted to a hospital.
