Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, April 2) — Radio station DZMM has temporarily suspended all of its programs after its employees were exposed to two persons under investigation for COVID-19.

"We have suspended the regular programming of DZMM temporarily after asking all concerned on-duty personnel to go on self-quarantine for 14 days following their exposure to two Persons Under Investigation," DZMM said in a statement issued Wednesday night.

The radio station, owned by broadcasting giant ABS-CBN, said its studio and facilities have already been vacated for immediate disinfection.

"Those who have not been exposed shall work from home," the management added.

It said that its programs had to be suspended starting 10 p.m. on Wednesday, and will instead be replaced by shows from the ABS-CBN News Channel until they resume operations.

The country's COVID-19 cases have already reached 2,311, with 96 fatalities and 50 recoveries to date.
