The swine flu scare has everyone around the world scared, and health officials overseas aren’t taking any chances: David Cook and David Archuleta were told by officials in the Philippines that they had to go have a thorough checkup before they could play a concert in a big mall on Saturday.


E! News reports that quarantine officials came to their hotels right after they arrived. Edgardo Sabitsana, director of the quarantine bureau, told them they could be held, arrested or detained and their concert could be banned if they did not cooperate.

The duo reportedly took a few hours to check out the terms with their attorneys before submitting to the examination. They also promised to watch for symptoms, including taking their temperature at least twice per day.


Good news for fans, as it seems the show will go on for the Davids.
