  • Because of the community quarantine, government offices have been operating with a skeleton workforce. If you need to transact with any of these offices, you might face some difficulties since the Civil Service Commission still discourages agencies from requiring all employees to physically report to work, despite some areas transitioning to the general community quarantine.

    If your requirements are urgent, here’s a list of government agencies that are accepting members and what to expect when you get there.
