Presidential Security Group (PSG) fully implements strict security measures in Malacañang Palace. One of these is by filling up a declaration form which asks for contact tracing and monitoring, CoVID-19 symptoms check, and travel history.
Congressman Eric Yap entered Malacañang last 21 March 2020. For whatever reason, he failed to disclose all the needed information. PSG troopers on duty assessed him according to the answers on the said form he submitted, the basis of which he was allowed entry.
This incident shall serve as a reference for PSG’s implementation of enhanced screening measures for all those who enter Malacañang Complex.
