May 3 ang dapat na coronation night sa Mall of Asia Arena ng 1st Miss Universe Philippines.
Dahil sa COVID-19, nagdesisyon ang Miss Universe Philippines (MUP) Organization na ilipat sa June 14 ang coronation night.
Pero hindi pa rin ito matutuloy dahil mataas pa ang bilang ng mga kaso ng mga infected ng coronavirus sa Pilipinas.
Ang latest update, kumpirmadong October 25, 2020 na angcoronation night ng 1st Miss Universe Philippines.
Ayon ito sa Miss Universe Philippines Organization.
Tiniyak naman ng creative director nitong si Jonas Gaffud na sumusunod sila sa mga provision ng Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) sa mga paghahandang ginagawa nila.
“Disinfecting, testing, wearing of masks and social distancing. For now, we are limited to shooting at home or in very small groups.
"It is challenging but I believe we still produced some pretty great contents nonetheless," sabi pa ni Jonas.
Ibinalita pa niya ang partnership ng MUP Organization at ng St. Luke’s Medical Center.
“We have partnered with St.Luke’s Medical Center for physical and mental support.
"In this regard, we would like the women to identify which groups to help—especially people and industries that make them beautiful, our fashion designers, makeup artists, hairstylists, even events and production groups.
“Many of them lost their sources of livelihood. They did not simply exist to give us superficial beauty, all of these people contribute to our well being, our culture, they give us joy.
“We must also give back and pay attention to them. It is one big industry that needs our help," pahayag ni Jonas tungkol sa beauty and fashion world.
Limampu’t dalawa ang official candidates ng Miss Universe Philippines kaya kinumusta namin kay Jonas kung may mga contestant na umatras dahil sa COVID-19.
“Sa ngayon, wala pa naman, so far. But we welcome any development or decision from the contenders.”
