Meanwhile, the recruitment of police officers is currently suspended and the Camp Crame has been advised to process the applications. The announcement has been made after Davao City has issued the Executive Order No. 31, which is linked to the regulation of barangay, local, and national office events.

“Ang ating mga personnel ay pinagbabawalan na mag-uwian. As much as possible, stay-in lang sila muna habang may mga nagpa-positive,” PRO-XI spokesperson Police Maj. Eudisan Gultiano said.
