“There are no exemptions for any person on these health protocols” - Malacanang

Everyone should be accountable for their actions, most especially those government officials who are themselves making the laws of the land.
According to Presidential Spokesperson and concurrent Presidential Legal Counsel Atty. Salvador Panelo, they’re going to wait for the result of the investigation conducted by the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) once the accused were already face charges from their complainants.

Panelo assured the public that they will not give any special treatment to the public officials proven violating the government laid protocols.

Here’s the statement from the Presidential Spokesperson:
“The Palace has received reports that certain officials who are considered persons under either investigation or monitoring, pursuant to issued guidelines, have allegedly breached protocols set by the government through the Department of Health.
The reports being aired in the open are, however, conflicting; hence, the Office of the President deems it appropriate that the same be formally evaluated by the concerned agencies upon a complaint or otherwise to ascertain the true facts behind the incidents.

The protocols set by the government for persons under investigation or monitoring, must be strictly and absolutely observed by all people falling under the said categories, regardless of their socio-political status. They are not meant to discomfort or burden anyone. They have been established to ensure that public health and safety are secured at all times. There are no exemptions for any person on these health protocols. Those holding high positions in the government are enjoined to set an example to their constituents by strictly observing them.
The equal protection clause of the Constitution imposes equal treatment to all. Any transgressor, therefore, must be dealt with in accordance with the law.”
A few days back two public officials, man of the hour Senator Koko Pimentel breach of quarantine protocols when along with his wife he went to the Makati Medical Center to accompany her wife and House Committee on Appropriations chairperson Eric Yap who still attended Housed duties wherein he should be in quarantine, both are facing possible charges for still going outside their homes while waiting for their COVID-19 test results.

Both already apologized for their mistakes and asks for the understanding of the public.

“I’d like to extend my apologies to the Makati Medical Center. Please tell me how I can make it up to you,” Pimentel said on a separate statement, “just allow me in the meantime to recover and of course please give focus on my wife and the two lives which are involved here, which are at stake,” 

“Humihingi ako ng patawad at pag-unawa mula sa mga taong nakasalamuha ko. I was paranoid dahil may kaunting ubo akong naramdaman but I felt it was normal for me,” said Yap in a statement.

According to the Department of Health (DOH) PUIs should quarantine themselves while waiting for the result of their test.
