Angel Locsin reposted the announcement of the Quezon City government inviting those who went to her community pantry showing COVID-19 symptoms to avail of free swab testing. 

On her Instagram page, Angel posted, "According to CESU chief Dr. Rolando Cruz, residents who are showing COVID-19 symptoms such as flu and cough after going to yesterday’s event at the Titanium Bldg., Brgy. Holy Spirit need to come forward and have themselves checked."

The actress also shared the link to book an appointment and to the QC Contact Tracing hotlines.


Angel organized a community pantry to celebrate her birthday on Friday, April 23 which drew a huge crowd. 

The actress apologized for what transpired in her community pantry.

"Nagsimula naman kami na maayos talaga. 'Yung aking ramp, kung saan kami nagbibigay, ay may mga markers pa po para ma-observe ang social distancing at maka-follow po ng protocols. Nagpatulong din po kami sa munisipyo, sa barangay po, may mga pumunta din pong pulis at military na tumulong din po. 'Di lang nila makontrol ang mga tao. Hindi po ito ang gusto kong mangyari. Nagsimula po kami ng maayos. Nagkataon lang talaga na gutom lang po talaga ang mga tao na kahit wala sa pila sumingit na po sila,” she said in a video she posted on her Instagram page. 

She added, “Sa lahat po ng naabala ngayon, pasensya na po. Hindi po ito talaga ang intensyon natin. Kahit anong paghahanda namin para ma-avoid yung gantong gulo, hindi lang talaga siya ma-control kahit na nandito na yung munisipyo, military, pulis, barangay."

A 67-year-old man named Rolando Dela Cruz who lined up at the pantry also died that day.

"Humihingi po ako ng tawad sa pamilya. Kanina po pinuntahan at nakapagusap po kami ng personal ng mga anak nya sa ospital. At habang buhay po ako hihingi ng patawad sa kanila. Sa ngayon po, I will prioritize helping the family and I will make it my responsibility to help them get through this. I am very, very sorry," she said.
