The Land Transportation Office (LTO) suspended work at its Central Office and at the Quezon City Licensing Office on Wednesday (June 17) after 12 of its employees tested positive for coronavirus disease (COVID-19).



LTO chief Assistant Secretary Edgar Galvante said they will conduct disinfection including further COVID-19 testing among its employees.

“The health and safety of our employees, as well as those of the public whom we are serving is important. We have suspended operations in order to make sure that the threat of spreading the coronavirus at our offices is contained,” he said.

Operations at the LTO Central Office and the Quezon City Licensing Office will be suspended until Friday (June 19) and will resume on Monday (June 22).

“Clients may renew their license or get their student permit online from LTO-NCR pilot sites in Eastwood Mall and Ever Gotesco along Commonwealth Avenue,” the LTO said. AAC
