We wish to inform the public that Civil Service Commission (CSC) offices nationwide continue to operate and provide frontline services to our clientele, notwithstanding the implementation of the following work arrangements*:

Community Quarantine Classification

Work Arrangement

It is also important to note that additional health measures may be enforced by provincial/city/municipal governments within their respective areas of jurisdiction.

Recognizing that there may be different situations in different localities, we strongly advise our clients to coordinate first with the CSC Regional/Field/Central Office offering the service they wish to avail, to know the possible modes of transaction as well as the health protocols being implemented in the office. (For example, a number of CSC Regional Offices are using an Online Appointment System to control the number of walk-in clients in a given day.)

The directory of CSC offices nationwide is available at www.csc.gov.ph/cscrod.

Protocols for walk-in clients
While electronic transactions are currently preferred to minimize close contact, walk-in clients shall be allowed entry inside CSC, but only in designated areas such as the lobby, as long as the following minimum public health standards are observed:

• Wear a face mask upon entering and within CSC premises. Those not wearing face masks will be denied entry or asked to leave the premises;
• Ensure physical distance of at least one (1) meter away from other people;
• Comply with infection control measures being implemented by the office, such as temperature check, hand hygiene, foot bath, including referral procedures for visitors found with symptoms;
• STAY AT HOME if you are showing COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have relevant history of travel or exposure within the last 14 days.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has made available multiple alternative work arrangements (AWA) that government agencies can adopt while the entire country is placed under a State of Public Health Emergency due to the coronavirus disease-2019 or COVID-19 pandemic.

These are work-from-home arrangement, skeleton workforce, four-day or compressed workweek, and staggered working hours. An agency may also adopt work arrangements consisting of a combination of these, or other work arrangements appropriate and applicable to the agency considering the prevailing community quarantine in the area where it is located and the nature of work performed by its employees.

CSC Resolution No. 2000540 (Revised Interim Guidelines for Alternative Work Arrangements and Support Mechanisms for Workers in the Government During the Period of State of National Emergency Due to COVID-19 Pandemic), promulgated on 7 May 2020 and circularized via CSC Memorandum Circular No. 10, s. 2020, contains the complete set of guidelines for implementing the said AWA.
