Some staff members and patrons of a Makati bar visited by a returning Filipino who skipped quarantine protocols tested positive of COVID-19, they said in a statement.
In their post, Kampai said that they are saddened to report that some of their staff members tested positive of COVID-19 after December 23, when the female guest visited their establishment.
They said that the female guest showed her proof of her vaccination, filled out a health declaration form and had normal temperature. She was reportedly allowed entry because her companions had a reservation at the bar but it was not disclosed that she came from abroad.
The guest reportedly stayed from 10 pm on December 23 until 1 am of the 24th.
“We are disappointed and share the same sentiments of most people about the decision and actions taken by this individual, who has now compromised the health and well being of our customers and staff. Rest assured that we are 100% committed to doing everything we can from our end to bring justice to those who have been affected by the wrongful actions of that individual,” they said.
Kampai said that they are also temporarily closing down operations as their staff have been advised to self isolate before retesting in a week’s time.
