After weeks of working from home, the employees of the Office of the Ombudsman (OMB) in Quezon City finally returned to their offices today, May 17.

However, certain health parameters have been set in place to keep Ombudsman employees safe from the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

“To protect the health and safety of its reporting employees, the Office shall continue to adopt the NO WALK-IN POLICY for the Clearance Section, and applications for clearance may be filed online at or deposited at the drop box located at the entrance gate of the OMB Building, Agham Road, Diliman, Quezon City,” the advisory stated.

It said that clearances will be released via courier secured by the applicant or by mail as it stressed that personal pick-up of clearances is not allowed.

It also said that for the public’s queries as to the status of clearance applications, the OMB urged them to contact their telephone numbers: 8426-7752, 8479-7300 loc. 1230, 2110, 2111, 2137; 8926-8786, and 8426-7748 or through e-mail — [email protected]
