  • Camille Prats and husband VJ Yambao have not seen their kids Nathan, Nala Camilla, and Nolan Cristiano. They have yet to complete their 14-day self-quarantine after arriving from their no-kids trip to the U.S. last March 14, 2020.

    "More than a week ko na silang hindi nakikita kasi we're also in self-quarantine, kame ng asawa ko," Camille said on GMA 7's All-Out Sunday live chat episode on March 22, 2020. "We just got back from our trip, and we decided to stay in a separate house for two weeks before we can go home to our family," she added. Camille's kids have been staying at her parents' house.

    "So far okay naman kami. It's been eight days [since they arrived] and wala naman kaming nararamdamang kakaiba, so thank God for that." the mom of three said.

    Camille explained that even if a person doesn't feel sick, he or she may still pass the virus to others, especially individuals who are more susceptible to the disease. These include people who have weak immune systems such as the elderly and those with preexisting conditions such as hypertension and diabetes.

    "My parents have [preexisting conditions]," Camille said. "And I just want to be sure na hindi ko sila mahahawa, lalu na yung mga bata," she stressed.

    Camille and VJ decided to err on the side of caution

    Today, March 26, 2020, was the Yambao's 12th day of self-quarantine. Upon arriving in the country, Camile and VJ came home to an empty house. They wanted to be "sure na wala talaga kaming sakit at hindi kami nahawa during our trip."

    "I really miss my kids. I miss my family. I miss my parents at mga kapatid ko, lahat sila dun, I really want to see them," the actress-host revealed in her latest vlog that documents their trip home from the U.S.

    Camille and VJ couldn't greet their family with hugs or give them pasalubong as they typically would after a trip abroad. "Tiis lang. I know it's hard, I know it's not easy to be on self-quarantine. I can't imagine not seeing my kids for another two weeks, but this will be what's best for them," the mom of three stressed.

    It was while Camille and VJ were on their trip when cases of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) started rising. "During our trip, everything just broke out. News about COVID-19 fastly spreading in the U.S. and back in the Philippines,' she wrote on Instagram.

    "As in sobrang naipit kami in between that, so we're just really hoping to get home," Camille said while waiting to board their flight at the Los Angeles International Airport.

    Once boarded, Camille and VJ disinfected their seats, armrests, tables, entertainment consoles. "Kailangan maging extra OC (obsessive-compulsive in cleanliness) these days," she stressed.

    The mom of three also called on everyone to stay safe and healthy and stay home as much as they can. Camille asked for prayers to give comfort and hope that things will be better soon.

    "I can't wait to wake up to that day," she said. "Sama-saman nating lalagpasan to. Kayang-kaya natin to," she added.
