MANILA, Philippines – The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) on Wednesday urged business owners to process payrolls online for the duration of the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine.

In a resolution dated March 24, the IATF said it “strongly encourages” companies to process wages online amid the 30-day community quarantine.

But for those who cannot process their workers’ salaries online, the IATF said one payroll manager for each company is allowed to travel on March 26 and 27 “for the purpose of processing their company payrolls covering the period until April 15, 2020.”

Most businesses were forced to shut down, and their employees to work from home after the government ordered the suspension of business operations and public transportation, except for essential services, to arrest the spread of coronavirus in the country.

The enhanced community quarantine in Luzon is effective until April 12.
