The Presidential Security Group has the sole and unique mandate of protecting the President of the Republic. By ensuring the good health condition of the PSG troopers means deploying competent and able personnel who are not themselves threat to the health of the President.
In this premise, PSG will enforce a total lockdown starting midnight of 28 March until 10 April 2020. The lockdown ONLY APPLIES TO ALL PSG PERSONNEL and their dependents who are staying at the PSG compound and Malacanang complex. All PSG personnel and their dependents are required to undergo self quarantine and will just stay in their respective quarters for the duration of the lockdown.
All offices situated in Malacañang Complex, most especially in Malacañan Palace, shall continue to MAINTAIN THEIR SKELETAL WORKFORCE. Essential civilian employees shall still be allowed to enter the Palace area subject to regular screening procedures.
All these stringent security measures that will be implemented by PSG intend not only to ensure the safety of its personnel and Malacañang employees, but ultimately, to safeguard the health of the President amid the existing health crisis brought about by COVID-19.
