    Meanwhile, only the state-run RTVM will be allowed to cover the SONA inside the Batasang Pambansa Complex in Quezon City on Monday, July 27.

    Based on the recommendation of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, other media outfits would not be allowed inside the Batasang Pambansa to minimize the risk of the President’s exposure to COVID-19.

    RTVM will provide the video of Duterte’s fifth SONA to members of the media.

    Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Martin Andanar said the RTVM team assigned for the SONA coverage would undergo tests.

    “Precautionary measures, such as testing, will be conducted for the SONA assigned team in order to ensure the safety of President Duterte and the rest of the audience at the Batasang Pambansa,” he said.

    Andar said on Saturday that RTVM will push through with its SONA coverage plan despite two RTVM personnel tested positive for the COVID-19.

    “The Radio Television-Malacañang (RTVM) will continue on their coverage plan with the deployment of a different team that is not among those who have been in contact with its two COVID-19-positive personnel,” he said.
