You don't need to be tested for COVID-19. Take steps to protect yourself and others.

All Filipinos have a responsibility to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. There are steps you can take to protect yourself and others.

  • Practice social distancing. This is not the same as self-isolation. You do not need to remain indoors, but you do need to avoid being in close contact with people.

  • Practice good hygiene: wash hands often, cover coughs and sneezes, and avoid touching your face.

  • Monitor for COVID-19 symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, sore throat or runny nose.

  • If you do develop any COVID-19 symptoms, stay home and take this self-assessment again.
