COVID-19 FAQ

Made by volunteer members of the Filipino Legal Community

Last Updated: March 19, 2020

Life in the time of Covid-19 is uncertain, but hopefully the volunteers in this group can shed a little light on the murkier aspects of our new day-to-day brought about by the virus.

Because, really, life does go on. A few things:

  1. As the situation is still fluid, with more information coming by the day, our hope is that this will be an e​volving ​document, and we will strive to release updates as new information or questions arrive.

  2. While we will bring the best of our knowledge and expertise to the answers given here, this document is meant to point the reader in the right direction, and i​s in no way a substitute for actual legal advice.

Please stay safe, everyone!
