A staff member at Carreras Ltd has tested positive for COVID-19.
According to the company, the employee was not based at the company’s headquarters in Kingston.
The company in a release on Saturday (August 29) said that in alignment with Ministry of Health and Wellness’ protocols the employee was immediately advised to self-quarantine and contact was made with the health authorities.
“Since the suspicion of exposure, all the staff members who have been in immediate contact with the affected employee have been placed in self-isolation awaiting testing and the affected location immediately closed for sanitization along with the warehouse and vehicles,” said Carreras in a release.
“Since the onset of COVID-19 in Jamaica, the company has proactively made provisions and shared with each employee the options available to them to support them throughout the period that they are affected. Support includes the provision of a contact list for doctors- within the parishes of Carreras’ depots- who have been contracted to give urgent medical attention to Carreras employees who are experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms or have suspicions of being exposed,” added the company in the release.
The company says it continues to issue sanitization packages which include masks, sanitizers & refills etc to all employees.
