Likewise, all officials and employees in areas declared as low risk, or not under quarantine are required to report for work starting Monday.

In areas where public transport is not available, taxmen shall report for assignment to the nearest regional or district office from their residence.

These were among the instructions issued by BIR Commissioner Caesar Dulay in an unnumbered memorandum after the Inter-agency Task Force reclassified the whole country under general enhanced community quarantine (GECQ), except for Metro Manila, Laguna and Cebu which are under modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ).

The BIR chief also instructed regional directors, district officers and heads of various audit divisions in the national office to follow the Civil Service Commission’s (CSC) guideline on work schedule.

The CSC allows work from home, skeletal work force and four-day work per week with personnel working 10 hours per day to complete the 40-hour work per week. (Jun Ramirez)#
