The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp (Pagcor) ordered to temporary suspension of business by Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGOs) and related service providers on the country’s main island Luzon, “for the duration of the enhanced community quarantine imposed by the government, effective immediately”. Such quarantine is in effect until April 14, according to the authorities.

As for POGO operations outside Luzon, Pagcor advices operators and service providers to abide by the community quarantine measures that are being adopted by concerned local government units.
