Quiapo Church was placed under lockdown after a visiting priest tested positive for coronavirus disease 2019.
Fr. Douglas Badong, parochial vicar of the Quiapo Church, told GMA News that the lockdown would be until July 4. It started on June 19.
According to Badong, the priest stayed in the church following the implementation of community quarantine in the previous months. When travel was allowed, he already returned to Mindanao where he was tested for COVID-19.

The church's staff and other priests are not allowed to go out of Quiapo Church.
The Catholic faithful are also not allowed to enter the church and attend masses. They may just hear masses through the screen placed outside the church.
Badong said the other staff and priests of the church also have undergone rapid testing wherein they tested negative for COVID-19.
