NARRA, Palawan — All government employees here will follow a four-day workweek schedule, in compliance with an earlier directive by the Civil Service Commission (CSC).

Lemuel Mante, the executive assistant, said that starting March 16, the local government unit (LGU) of Narra will only be open from Monday to Thursday.

The directive is pursuant to CSC Resolution No. 2000481 issued on March 11, resolving to adopt the interim guidelines for alternative work arrangements and support mechanisms for workers in government during the State of Public Health Emergency, based on Proclamation No. 922 related to the threat brought by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

“Wala tayong magagawa kundi sundin ang ipinag-uutos ng CSC. Simula sa Monday, ito ay adopted na sa Narra hanggang Huwebes na lang papasok lahat ng empleyado natin dito, bilang pag-iingat pa rin sa COVID-19. Mayor Danao did a lot just to secure Narranians, example sa pag-postpone ng mga activities natin dito sa Narra included ’yong sa mga aktibidad ng LGU sa town fiesta natin,” Mante said.

All department offices were informed of the work schedule and is expected to comply starting Monday, according to Mante. // Photo courtesy of BFP Narra
