Gatchalian to undergo self-quarantine after exposure to COVID-19 positive person

Senator Sherwin Gatchalian said he would undergo self-quarantine after a resource person for a committee hearing he chaired on March 5 tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

"Though I am asymptomatic and feel healthy, I will follow government set protocols on such cases and go into self-quarantine immediately given that I interacted with the said individual during that committee hearing," Gatchalian said in a statement.

“I instructed all my staff to do the same, especially those who had direct contact with the said person, too,” he added.

The resource person attended the hearing of the Senate Committee on Basic Education, Arts and Culture.
