QC sets guidelines to speed up contact tracing in workplaces with massive manpower

CALOOCAN CITY, Aug. 1 (PIA) -- The Quezon City government has issued guidelines to enhance contact tracing and enforcement of health protocols in companies with 100 or more employees.

Mayor Joy Belmonte said the guidelines will help speed up contact tracing in case of positive COVID-19 cases in such workplaces.

Under the guidelines, Belmonte has tasked workplaces with 100 or more employees to conduct meticulous contact tracing when there is a confirmed COVID-19 case among their employees or close contacts of their employees.

A person is considered a close contact if he or she had a face-to-face contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case within one meter distance, for more than 15 minutes and within a 14 day period from the confirmed case’s onset of symptoms.

Companies with such cases must require close contacts to complete a 14-day home quarantine if no COVID-19 symptoms were exhibited.  The management should undertake the swab testing of the close contact if the person exhibits any COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, difficulty breathing or body aches.

“In either case, close contacts should not be allowed to report for work immediately upon identification as such, and should be required to self-isolate at home,” Belmonte said.

The close contact may end quarantine when the person ends the 14-day quarantine without symptoms, as confirmed by a medical doctor, or a certification showing a negative swab test.

Companies are also mandated to provide the City Epidemiological Surveillance Unit (CESU), through qcsurveillance@quezoncity.gov.ph, with updates regarding confirmed cases and close contacts among the workforce.

If economically feasible, companies are encouraged to provide daily allowance to employees on home quarantine.

To help speed up contact tracing, the local government mandates big companies to require each employee to list down all usual close contacts, both inside and outside work, even prior to any confirmed or suspect COVID-19 case.

“Employees are also required to undergo self-monitoring for symptoms daily. Employees that experience any onset of symptoms during work should inform their supervisor and leave the workplace immediately,” said Belmonte.

In addition, the city government enjoins companies to strictly implement the usual preventive measures, such as improved workplace ventilation, practice work from home if possible, use of face masks, physical distancing and frequent sanitation and disinfection of workplace.

Companies that violate the guidelines face suspension or revocation of business permit, aside from other applicable penalties under relevant laws, ordinances or regulations. (QC PAISD/PIA-NCR)

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.
