Vice President Leni Robredo revealed Wednesday, August 25, that she has entered quarantine after a close contact tested positive for Covid-19.

“I have been exposed to somebody from our office who tested positive for Covid today. While we have been religiously following health protocols, I was a very close contact,” VP Robredo said through her personal Facebook account. “I started my quarantine yesterday after she developed symptoms. Because of this I need to continue with my quarantine.”
