The Philippine Civil Service Commission (CSC) has suspended its nationwide examinations due to the threat of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
In their Facebook post, the said suspension is in adherence to President Rodrigo Duterte’s declaration of a State of Public Health Emergency throughout the Philippines.
“It is necessary to suspend the exams as a preemptive health measure to mitigate the rise in the number of COVID-19 cases,” the CSC said in their post.
The said examination was set for March 15 in 66 testing locations nationwide with an estimated total of 293,845 individuals that are registered to take the test.
For more details and for clarification, examinees are advised to directly call their CSC Regional Offices: the Contact Center ng Bayan 165-65 or the CSC’s Public Assistance Center at (02) 8951-2575 or 8951-2576.—AAC
