Malacañang has ordered the suspension of all classes and government work on Monday in Metro Manila and other regions due to typhoon “Ulysses.”
Memorandum Circular No. 82, signed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea last November 11, suspended work in government offices and classes in public schools at all levels in Regions II, III, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, V, Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) and the National Capital Region effective 3:00 p.m. today until November 12.
“However, those agencies whose functions involve the delivery of basic and health services, preparedness/response to disasters and calamities, and/or the performance of other vital services shall continue with their operations and render the necessary services,” the Order read.
The Palace left the suspension of work for private companies, offices, and schools to the discretion of their respective heads.
Ulysses is projected to leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility Friday afternoon.
