Customs & Border Control (CBC) was informed by the Public Health Department that a CBC Officer has test positive for COVID-19.
The employee is now in isolation and the Public Health Department has immediately commenced the required contact tracing.
“We pray that our colleague will remain in good health and will test negative at the end of the two week period of isolation”, stated CBC Director, Mr Charles Clifford.
The need for further testing/isolation will be determined once the risk assessment is completed.
More than 120 CBC officers/employees have been tested for COVID-19 thus far and testing is continuing.
CBC’s policy is to sanitize the work area of an employee that has tested positive for COVID-19 immediately after notification of a positive result.
