The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office today said its draws for its Lotto games will continue and operations of its outlets nationwide will remain open amid the worsening threat of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
PCSO general manager Royina Garma said, though, that witnesses and observers in the nightly live Lotto draws will be limited while Metro Manila is under community quarantine.
“We will be in full operations but will observe strict safety practices to ensure the health of our office and field staff. We have set in place precautionary steps so we can continue operating with the least risk of exposure to the virus,” Garma said.
Garma assured the public that the PCSO will play a proactive role in the fight against COVID-19 and will readily provide assistance to local government units in the implementation of community health initiatives.
