During the Senate Hearing on June 15, 2021, Governor Gwendolyn Garcia explained on Cebu's swab-upon-arrival policy which is a "conscientious, humane and practical" method of testing returning overseas Filipino workers, non-OFWs, and returning overseas Filipinos.

Governor Gwendolyn Garcia of Cebu pointed out to the Senate Committee of the Whole that Cebu's policy has the concurrence of the Cebu Provincial Board through Ordinance No. 2021-04 as amended by Ordinance No. 2021-05.

The ordinances have taken cue from Garcia's Executive Order No. 17, Series of 2021.
