Three residents of Capas, Tarlac earlier isolated in a New Clark City facility were sent home Friday, April 24, after completing their 14-day quarantine. 

The three individuals who were earlier considered persons under monitoring (PUMs) were isolated for two weeks at the University of the Philippines-Philippine General Hospital (UP-PGH) Polyclinic in New Clark City because of their travel histories. They were the first ones to be sent home from the polyclinic. 

In a simple ceremony, the Capas residents received certifications of quarantine completion from Mayor Reynaldo Catacutan and Municipal Health Officer Dr. Franchette Reyes. Also present was Capas Department Head for Public Order Safety and Management Edgar Guevarra. 

During their stay, they were provided free meals and drinking water, multivitamins, face masks and gloves, and hygiene kits.
