A number of high-rating teleseryes of television networks ABS-CBN and GMA Network are currently returned on Philippine television as these networks halt tapings in light of the enhanced community quarantine.
Both networks earlier made an announcement that they will stop the taping of all current programs in compliance with the guidelines set by the government concerning the COVID-19 outbreak.

The move is also for the “safety of everyone involved” in production.
The two networks also earlier suspended the staging of live entertainment shows.
Pansamantalang ititigil ng ABS-CBN ang pagtatanghal ng mga live entertainment show at taping ng mga teleserye nito simula Marso 15 bilang pagsunod sa deklarasyon ng pamahalaan ng community quarantine upang pigilan ang pagkalat ng #COVID19.
