IATF updates testing requirements for unvaccinated on-site workers

On Monday, June 27, 2022, the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) updated testing requirements for unvaccinated eligible employees.

In areas where there are sufficient supplies of COVID-19 vaccines, all public and private sector establishments and employers must require eligible employees tasked with on-site work to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Those who remain unvaccinated for on-site work purposes, however, will be required to undergo RT-PCR tests every two weeks or weekly antigen tests.

Meanwhile, employees in the public sector, including local government units, may be reimbursed for the costs of the RT-PCR or antigen tests, subject to funds availability and civil service, accounting, and auditing rules and regulations.

Employees with a recent COVID-19 infection within the last 90 days and those with alternative working arrangements that do not require on-site reporting are exempt from this testing requirement.

Furthermore, the above-mentioned testing requirements will be waived for areas classified as Alert Level 1, subject to the implementation of clinical-based management, including symptomatic testing. However, the aforementioned testing requirements will be reinstated in areas classified as Alert Level 2 or higher. (Source: OPS)
