Good news! GrabFood and GrabExpress are back online beginning today, Tuesday at 1:30 pm. In fact, the announcement was made in the first day of enhanced community quarantine declared Luzon.
Prior to this, Grab initially announced a temporary service shutdown on Tuesday morning.
In a social media post, Grab announced the good news, “Upon careful assessment of the on-ground situation and after discussions with regulators, we are resuming GrabFood and GrabExpress operations beginning March 17, with a skeletal fleet operating to match allowed restaurant schedules.”
Of course, Grab reassured the public on their mission to serve the essential needs of every Filipino.
“We are committed to support food establishments that remain in continuous operations. We will support continuous flow of goods to serve the essential needs of Filipinos.
“Delivery-partners are advised to prioritize safety beyond all costs.
“We will continue to exercise strict safety measures such as contactless delivery, temperature checks, increased cleaning frequency of delivery-bags, on top of other measures in cooperation with our partner restaurants.
“As we continue to ramp up service availability, we ask for your patience as deliveries could take a bit longer given the situation.
“All Grab transport services remain temporarily suspended.
“Let’s all work together to stay safe and #FlattenTheCurve!”
However, customers are encouraged to switch to online payment modes to reduce physical contact, among other safety measures.
