To ensure the safety of anchors and staff, “Umagang Kay Ganda” now strictly observes social distancing with Anthony, Jeff, and Jorge leading the show in the UKG studio, while Amy, Ariel, Ariella, Gretchen, and Winnie joined the fun from their homes via a video conferencing app.

Meanwhile, “Umagang Kay Ganda” also kicked off its comeback with a smashing surprise as Kapamilya star Jona showcased her powerful singing chops live from her home.
