Foodpanda and GrabFood Pause Their Services in Luzon Temporarily
In hopes of helping flatten the curve.
(SPOT.ph) Food delivery services have been a godsend in the last few days, with everyone being urged to stay at home. Likely in line with the enhanced community quarantine however, a few major players have decided to suspend their services temporarily. Of these are GrabFood and Foodpanda. In a Facebook post, Grab has stated that they will be pausing their GrabCar, GrabFood, GrabExpress, and GrabTrike operations in Luzon “from March 17 until further notice.” Foodpanda also writes in its app that they have “suspended [their] services in Luzon until further notice”.
The enhanced community quarantine covering all of Luzon was announced yesterday, March 16, and mainly covers four main measures: a strict home quarantine (i.e., everybody has to stay indoors), the suspension of all forms of transportation, the regulation of food and health services, and the presence of more uniformed personnel on the streets.
