In an interview with, Alden said he took the test as part of precautionary measures since he reports for work daily.

“To be honest, whenever I report to work everyday for the past weeks na bumalik kami on air sa ‘Eat Bulaga,’ ayoko pa ring i-put at risk ‘yung mga mahal ko sa buhay, that’s why umuuwi ako sa kanila every two weeks,” he said. 

“I don’t want to risk it although sa ‘Eat Bulaga’ we follow strict protocols. Kumpleto kami sa equipment. We have a doctor there, appointed to foresee all the operations being done all throughout the day, sanitation of hands, masks. Before I go home after weeks work sa ‘Eat Bulaga,’ kina-quarantine ko ‘yung sarili ko kasi I don’t want to risk it kahit pa walang nararamdaman since the symptoms of COVID-19 are asymptomatic. Hindi na ‘yan makikita agad.”
