In an earlier advisory, Comelec said that voter registration is conducted from Monday to Thursday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., while Fridays are scheduled for disinfection unless a local government unit prescribes a different disinfection day.
“The public is reminded that anti-COVID-19 protocols are being strictly imposed in all Comelec offices,” the advisory stated.
Voter registration amid the pandemic resumed last Sept. 1. It was first suspended in March 9 due to the COVID-19 problem.
The suspension was then extended several times, the last of which was until Aug. 31.
