Philippines gaming regulator PAGCOR has issued a memorandum to all Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators and service providers, ordering a 10-day quarantine be imposed upon employees returning from any country with confirmed cases of the coronavirus, reports Inside Asia Gaming.

The order, if strictly applied, would cover any POGO employee to have spent time in at least 15 countries, including China, Macau, Hong Kong, Thailand, the US, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, France, Vietnam, Nepal and Canada.

In an earlier announcement, PAGCOR said it is strictly monitoring the entry of Chinese citizens employed by the nation’s gaming companies and had already issued a memorandum requesting they exercise extreme caution in selecting employees to be sent to the Philippines. The second order demanding a 10-day quarantine period was sent early January 28.
