CLAIM: A supposed video report that claimed voters are required to wear face shields, bring their vaccination cards and negative RT-PCR test results recently circulated on social media.

This video, along with screenshots of it, surfaced online less than a week before the elections day on May 9.

RATING: The Facebook posts circulating are false and the video report with Comelec’s guidelines is outdated.


Comelec issued an advisory on social media that debunked these claims as false.

“Voters are NOT required to wear a face shield, or present a vaccination card or negative COVID-19 test result,” the poll body said.

It also advised the public against engaging in fake news online.

“Beware of fake news. Follow COMELEC to get accurate information,” Comelec said.
