After 48 days of Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ), the Philippine Statistics Authority Regional Statistical Service Office II (PSA RSSO II) on Monday, May 4, 2020, reopens its frontline services for the processing of PSA-Civil Registrar documents in Region 02.
In compliance to the advisory signed by National Statistician Claire Dennis S. Mapa and subject to the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) rules, the office adopts the “new normal” measures of delivering services to clients to ensure public safety. Corollary, and to adhere in physical distancing measure, PSA RSSO II limits the number of customers who can be inside the office at once to only ten clients. A makeshift plastic barrier was also installed to minimize potential health hazards for applicants as well as the office personnel. The agency also employed “no mask, no entry policy” and “check temperature” before entering the receiving area of the office.
PSA RSSO II Regional Director Marilyn T. Estrada strictly advises her staff and the clients to take extra precautionary measures by religiously wearing safety gears such as face mask or face shields, sanitize and abide by the “new normal” rules of the government.
For day one, about 81 clients were served with a total volume of 243 documents.
