ECQ Metro Manila government offices

MANILA, Philippines — Malacañang has ordered all government agencies in Metro Manila to maintain its reduced on-site personnel until August 31, 2021.

In Memorandum Circular No. 87 signed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea released Thursday, government agencies were told to retain their on-site personnel to just 20 percent while the rest of the personnel will work from home until the end of the month.


Such a set-up was implemented when the region was placed under a two-week enhanced community quarantine (ECQ). Metro Manila is now under a modified ECQ until August 31.


The heads of the Metro Manila agencies were also ordered to report to their respective department heads the “specific percentage of the agency’s skeleton workforce, together with the arrangements to ensure the continuing operation of the agency.”

Still, department heads may modify the submitted on-site capacity and related arrangements “as health considerations and the exigencies of the service may require.”

The offices of the legislative and judicial branches of government, independent constitutional bodies, and local government units in Metro Manila were also urged to adopt the said working arrangements.
