CDC suspends POGO activities

Philippine Offshore Gaming Operations (POGOs) inside the Clark Freeport Zone will not be allowed to operate during the month-long Enhanced Community Quarantine implemented by the national government.

This is in accordance with the March 18, 2020 Memorandum from the Executive Secretary which contains additional guidelines for the community quarantine over the entire Luzon and management of the COVID-19.

The Clark Development Corporation (CDC) issued guidelines in limiting movement within the Zone to prevent the spread of COVID-19 on March 17.

Only employees in specific business enterprises will be allowed to and from the Freeport.

The Enhanced Community Quarantine over the entirety of Luzon will be implemented until midnight of Monday, April 13.
