MANILA – The Department of Education on Sunday announced that face-to-face (F2F) classes for pilot schools in the National Capital Region (NCR) are suspended until alert status is lowered to Level 2.

The DepEd said in a statement Sunday night that its decision to suspend classes is consistent with the recent memorandum of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases for the Alert Level 3 protocols, given the significant rise in coronavirus cases in the NCR.

“Face-to-face classes in pilot schools in areas under Alert Levels 1 and 2 shall continue in the meantime that DepEd finalizes its report on the pilot face-to-face classes,” the DepEd said, noting that it held a meeting with NCR mayors regarding the suspension of in-person classes.

Following an increase in coronavirus cases, the alert level status in NCR was raised from Level 2 to Level 3 from January 3 to 15.

The Philippines recorded 4,600 new Covid-19 cases on January 2, bringing the country’s total to 2,851,931.
