Work in government offices and classes in public and private schools at all levels in Metro Manila have been suspended effective 12 noon Tuesday based Memorandum Circular No. 73 issued by the Palace.

The work and class suspensions were made “upon the recommendation of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (NDRMMC) and in view of the continuing inclement weather brought by Typhoon Tisoy,” according to Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea.

Exempted from the work suspension are agencies involved in the delivery of basic and health services, disaster preparedness and response, and performance of other vital services. These agencies must continue with their operations and render the necessary services, Medialdea said.

Mediealdea said the suspension of work for private companies and offices would be left to the discretion of their respective heads.

Typhoon “Tisoy” has unleashed heavy rains and strong winds as it battered several places in Luzon and Visayas. The typhoon forced authorities to evacuate affected residents, cancel flights, and suspend classes in the areas on the path of the typhoon.

Malacañang earlier assured the government was on top of the situation, citing that disaster response and relief agencies have been placed on alert to extend assistance to the affected communities. It has also appealed for public vigilance amid the onslaught of the latest weather disturbance in the country.
