10% of total working population in Tagbilaran City lost their jobs.

At least 10 percent of the total working population of Tagbilaran City had their jobs temporarily or permanently affected. This is a direct consequence of the forced closure of establishments when the city was placed under Enhanced Community Quarantine.

Barangay Cogon has the most number of workers (1,784) whose jobs were temporarily or permanently suspended, followed by Booy (853 workers), and Poblacion II (682 workers).

Majority of the businesses experienced cash flow problems.

Almost 90% of businesses surveyed reported cash flow problems during the pandemic, alongside experiencing difficulties in receiving supplies on time and shipping goods to customers.

The top three causes of these problems are the closure of businesses during the quarantine, customers unable to pay their accounts, and reduced logistics services.

The service sector is the worst hit.

The service sector reported the worst decline in sales. Before the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), the sector reported total sales of Php187.05 million. During the ECQ, sales dropped to Php31.60 million. The sector has not recovered from the drastic slump, even when general community quarantine (GCQ) was declared in the city.
