Sinuspindi ng Malacañang ang pasok sa government offices sa Abril 5, 2023 upang mabigyan ng sapat na panahon ang mga kawani ng gobyerno na makauwi sa kani-kanilang probinsya ngayong Semana Santa.
“To provide government employees full opportunity to properly observe 06-07 April 2023, regular holidays, and to allow them to travel to and from the different regions in the country, work in government offices on 05 April 2023 is hereby suspended from 12 o’clock in the afternoon onwards,” ayon sa memorandum circular No. 16 na pirmado ni Executive Secretary Lucas Bersamin nitong Marso 31.
“However, those agencies whose functions involve the delivery of basic and health services, preparedness/response to disasters and calamities, and/or he performance of other vital services shall continue with their operations and render the necessary services,” bahagi pa ng direktiba ng Malacañang.
