MANILA -- Mayor Vico Sotto said Pasig City government employees, whether regular or contractual, would get their full salaries during the Luzon-wide lockdown against COVID-19.

Frontline workers will also get hazard pay, overtime pay and other benefits, Sotto said on Facebook.

"'Wag kayong mag-alala, tuloy-tuloy kayong makakatanggap ng buong sweldo -- kahit 'yung mga job order na "no work no pay". Gagawan natin ng paraan. Basta, mag-ingat, at hangga't maaari sa bahay lang muna kayo, he said.

Listed below are the work arrangements set by the local government unit of Pasig:

President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday declared a state of national calamity on the first day of an enhanced quarantine that locked down Luzon island, home to roughly half the population.

Metro Manila's borders were shut to most passenger traffic and people were advised to stay and work in their homes. 

The health department recorded a total of 187 COVID-19 infections with 14 fatalities and 6 recoveries.
