IN line with President Rodrigo Duterte’s declaration of a state of public health emergency, the city government of Navotas will implement a 4-day work week starting tomorrow, March 16, 2020.
Mayor Toby Tiangco said the compressed work schedule is part of the city’s efforts to promote social distancing and help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
However, he assured the public that the NavoServe Social Services One-Stop Shop will remain open from Monday to Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM.
“We understand that securing medical assistance and guarantee letters is crucial. In this time of crisis, Navoteños, especially those who have less in life, can rest assured that they will get the help and assistance they need from our government,” he said.
In a memorandum order issued by Mayor Tiangco he stated that frontline services will remain available from Monday to Friday. Employees will work on a shifting schedule and will be required to render 10 hours of work per day for four days.
Among those who will follow the compressed and shifting work arrangement are the Business Permits and Licensing Office, City Treasurer’s Office, Local Civil Registry, Assessor’s Office, City Planning and Development Office, Franchising Permit Processing Unit, and the City Agriculture Office.
