Work shifts seen to help economy

Several government agencies asked local government units to ease curfew hours and business firms to adopt multiple and staggered work shifts to further open the economy, according to a report by CNN Philippines.

The three agencies' Joint Advisory No. 20-01, released on Sunday, said, "Business establishments are enjoined to adopt multiple and staggered work shifts (workers are to be allowed to adopt work shift schedule starting at e.g., 7 a.m., 8 a.m., 9 a.m., and so on) to allow more workers to report to work but still maintaining the physical distancing requirements, to spread out the congestion on our roads, and to ease the demand for public transportation."

The joint advisory is part of the several measures aimed at restimulating the economy, which was severely affected by the COVID-19 crisis, causing unemployment and poverty to many.

The advisory also mentioned the easing of curfew hours from the current 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., to 12 a.m. to 4 a.m. to be implemented in all areas of Metro Manila except Navotas City.

The shorter curfew was mentioned by Metro Manila Council and Parañaque Mayor Edwin Olivarez last week, and Metropolitan Manila Development Authority General Manager Jojo Garcia said this proposal has been "approved in principle" by the Inter-Agency Task Force since the suggestion came from the Cabinet secretaries.

Despite these changes, authorities still advise the public to follow health protocol when going out to avoid the risk of infection.
