Bianca Manalo has decided to put herself under self-quarantine following her boyfriend Senator Sherwin “Win” Gatchalian’s exposure to a resource person who tested positive for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
The Kapamilya actress shared a photo of herself wearing a face mask on Instagram along with the announcement that she’s undergoing a self-quarantine until she gets tested for the virus.
Bianca added that even if she has to stay away from her loved ones for a while, it’s important to be safe than sorry.
“It makes me sad that I won’t be able to see my own family, Probinsyano family and friends as of the moment. But we have to be proactive!” she said.
Her boyfriend Senator Gatchalian on Wednesday released a statement that he will be going into self-quarantine after being informed that one of the attendees at the Senate hearing he chaired last March 5 is now a confirmed COVID-19 case.
Gatchalian’s statement read: “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.”
The senator also instructed all his staff to do the same, “especially those who had direct contact with the said person.”
Bianca, on the other hand, told her followers to “stay safe, drink vitamin C, boost your immune system, drink lots of water and rest. ??❤️.”
She added: “I’ll keep myself busy by finishing all my books or start my new Koreanovela, Itaewon Class.?”
