Año said that he had PCR test Friday and test result came out Saturday.

He said that he “began experiencing flu-like symptoms, including a sore throat and body aches” on Aug. 13.

“I began my self-quarantine and got myself PCR tested on Aug. 14,’’ Año said.

Año is currently being closely monitored by his doctors and is now in isolation.

“I make this announcement to call the attention of all persons I had close contact with to go on self-quarantine, observe any symptoms in accordance with DOH guidelines, and take appropriate action,’’ he added.

The DILG chief said that being infected with the virus again emphasizes the severity of the virus.

He called on the public anew to practice minimum health standards, specifically wearing face masks, washing hands frequently, and practicing social distancing. 

“By adhering to these guidelines, we can all help keep our loved ones and our community safe,’’ Año said.

Año first contacted the disease last March but recovered after several weeks.
