MANILA, Philippines — The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) on Sunday announced the postponement of scheduled licensure examinations this year due to the increasing number of coronavirus disease 2019  (COVID-19) cases in the country.

In an advisory, the PRC said it would reset the conduct of the examinations scheduled in October and November this year to 2021, adding that the rise in COVID-19 cases has “resulted to fear and anxiety to the health and safety of all concerned.”
