  • Contact tracing undertaken among staff

Aitken Spence, in a statement yesterday said one of its employees had been exposed to the COVID-19 after a member of her immediate family had been diagnosed with the virus, leading to the company immediately launching contact tracing at its premises.   

“In line with our special COVID -19 health and safety procedures, we have conducted contact tracing at our premises to identify persons who may have been exposed (i.e. close contacts defined as any individual within 6 feet of an infected person 2 days before onset of illness until the patient is isolated) and will communicate directly with stakeholders as and when required. We have also identified and isolated possible exposed areas for disinfection within 24 hours,” the statement said.   Aitken Spence further said it had maintained precautionary procedures from the onset of the outbreak to safeguard company stakeholders, and to support national efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. “Accordingly, we are vigilantly monitoring the situation and will continue to work proactively with the Ministry of Health, the Epidemiology Unit and other relevant authorities to follow standard procedures,” it said.   

“We humbly request that the privacy of these individuals is respected and to avoid circulating unchecked information to avoid unnecessary panic,” Aitken Spence said.
