Kinuwestiyon ni Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Francisco Duque III ang pag-aalis ng quarantine period sa mga fully vaccinated sa mga turista na galing sa "green countries." Sinabi ni Duque na hindi ito kinonsulta ukol sa nasabing desisyon. "I wasn’t part of that IATF (Inter-Agency Task Force against Emerging Infectious Diseases) that deliberated on this yesterday. I was in another budget hearing with the Senate," ani Duque. Hindi rin umano kasali sina vaccine czar Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr at Interior Secretary Eduardo Año, vice-chairperson of National Task Force against Covid-19 nang gawin ang desisyon. "It's there so we just have to monitor these border controls and very closely monitor this. This will also be a subject of IATF discussions this afternoon once the members who weren't there yesterday... We’ll see how this is gonna turn out because we have some issues to raise," pahayag ni Duque. Giit niya, maging si Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ay hindi pinayagan alisin ang quarantine period. "If I recall, even the President said to just reduce the quarantine period but not do away with the quarantine period," giit niya.
