The provincial government of Bulacan will use a service drop box system starting Saturday, March 27, to test if it will be effective in serving residents without the need for face-to-face transactions.
Bulacan Gov. Daniel Fernando ordered the implementation of the drop box system following the new set-up imposed on the NCR+ bubble (National Capital Region, Bulacan, Rizal, Laguna, Cavite) and “to protect the public as well as the employees from acquiring the deadly virus.”
In a memorandum, Fernando said each department must provide a transparent drop box with a proper label where “various requests and documents will be placed.”
The drop boxes will then be placed on tables located at the back of the provincial hall which also serves as the waiting area for residents.
The provincial government said that after the first phase of implementation, an assessment will be conducted.
