The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) office building in Pasay City will be on lockdown for at least three working days starting July 2 after one personnel tested positive for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

CAB, in an advisory on July 1, said the lockdown protects the health and safety of its personnel and stakeholders. The agency’s premises will be subjected to disinfection procedures while all personnel will undergo real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test.

All transactions with CAB will be done online during the lockdown period, the advisory noted.

CAB is an attached agency of the Department of Transportation mandated to regulate the economic aspect of air transportation, and has general supervision, control and jurisdiction over air carriers, general sales agents, cargo sales agents, and air freight forwarders as well as their property, property rights, equipment, facilities, and franchise.
