Pursuant to Public Health Order No. C19-07 announced by San Francisco Mayor London Breed today, 16 March 2020, directing all San Francisco residents to shelter at their place of residence beginning midnight on Tuesday, 17 March 2020, and further to the Philippine Consulate General’s announcement on its suspension of consular services dated 13 March 2020, all consular services, including applications by mail, are suspended beginning 17 March (instead of 18 March 2020) until 10 April 2020, or until the Order is amended.
