The mayor of Ponce María “Mayita” Meléndez indicated that yesterday she implemented the protocol for Prevention and Control of Exposure to COVID-19 at the Head Start, Early Head Start centers and the Department of Human Resources of the Municipality after receiving information about an employee who obtained a positive molecular test as part of a contagion line that originates in his family nucleus.
“As a preventive measure, the workers of these dependencies were asked to carry out their working hours remotely as they had done at the start of this emergency. Today we continue with the phases established in the protocol to identify possible exposures, "said Meléndez through written statements.
" In the face of this new reality that we are experiencing, we are going to run into this type of scenario constantly, the important thing is to identify the case on time and be able to attend to the situation immediately to avoid the risk to the other colleagues, "he added.
The mayor clarified that in the educational centers there are no children attending.
