In line with the precautionary measures of the government to prevent the spread of COVID-19 virus, the orientation also highlighted the basic safety and health measures to the beneficiaries.

TUPAD is a community-based package of assistance that provides emergency employment for displaced workers, underemployed and seasonal workers, for a minimum period of 10 days, but not to exceed a maximum of 30 days, depending on the nature of work to be performed.

Social community projects, such as repair, maintenance, and/or improvement of common public facilities and infrastructure such as schools and health centers, debris clearing, de-clogging of canals, debris segregation and materials recovery, stockpiling and clearing. 

Moreover, the works also include economic community projects like repair, maintenance and/or rehabilitation of farm-to-market roads, bridges, post-harvest facilities, public markets and common service facilities such as production and display centers, fish ports, and agro-forestry community projects, such as tree planting, seedling preparation, and reforestation.

Prior to the actual engagement in employment, the beneficiaries are provided with basic orientation on safety and health; personal protective equipment (PPE) in the form of long-sleeved shirts, hats, and face masks; enrollment in group micro-insurance, to be included in the total project cost or as counterpart of the ACP/LGU; and official TUPAD ID.
