MANILA, Philippines — The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) on Friday announced the suspension of face-to-face classes in  areas under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) and modified ECQ.

President Rodrigo Duterte last week approved the recommendation of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-MEID) to place Metro Manila under ECQ from August 6 to 20.

Tesda Secretary Isidro Lapeña said in a memorandum that “in accordance with the IATF and TESDA guidelines, the face-to-face training and assessment in areas under ECQ and MECQ shall be suspended while the ECQ/MECQ status is in effect.”

Lapeña, however, said that competency assessment for Domestic Work NC II conducted by Technology Institutions may continue in areas placed under MECQ and lower quarantine levels.
