The Athletes’ Village in New Clark City will be the site used for our repatriated kababayans from China as they undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine period.
New Clark City was designed to be a resilient metropolis, and is ready for any and all situations, including those that concern public health.
The country is fortunate that President Rodrigo Duterte fast-tracked the development of New Clark City as part of the administration’s infrastructure development program.
The facilities in the Athletes’ Village will provide the best conditions for our overseas workers returning from China. We are happy to host them and contribute to the efforts taken by the government to assist our kababayans.
A Polyclinic operated by the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) is also located inside New Clark City, just two minutes away from the Athletes’ Village. It is equipped with a 24-hour Emergency Room Facility, Primary Care and Sports Medicine, Imaging Center (X-ray and Ultrasound), Diagnostic Laboratory and Pharmacy.
New Clark City is located just 30 minutes away from the Clark International Airport where the repatriated Filipinos will land from China.
In line with the announcement made by the Department of Health (DOH), New Clark City will be placed on lockdown starting Thursday, February 6, until further notice.
All preventive and precautionary measures are being put in place for our repatriated kababayans, as well as the entire area of New Clark City and its adjacent communities. The Philippine Sports Commission has already recommended the postponement of the 2020 ASEAN Para Games. Majority of the sporting events for the Para Games were scheduled to be held in New Clark City.
