temporary closure of its Regional Office to Public from 6 to 13 of November 2020 or maybe extended if
so warrant. The temporary closure was made due to the reported confirmed cases of COVID-19
infections at Barangay 27-C of Davao City where the approximate seat of the said EMB-XI Regional
Office is situated. Said closure was also made in order to give way to the surveillances and monitoring
conducted by the Local Government Unit and other government concerned agencies. Likewise, to
conduct disinfections of the office and keep away EMB-XI personnel safe from possible contamination.
