Message of Secretary General Atty. Jose Luis G. Montales, 17 March 2020:
We were advised that another employee from our Printing Service tested positive for COVID-19. He last reported for work on March 5. He went on leave on March 6, and was admitted to the hospital on March 7.
The diagnosis was Dengue. The doctors later tested him for COVID-19 on March 12 and 14, and the results just came out today.
Our prayers will come a long way for him. Let us keep praying for his recovery and for his family’s health.
We announced last March 13 our new work arrangements (rotational skeletal workforce/work from home/on-call). Let us follow the HRep safety protocols, the community quarantine, and the social distancing guidelines.
We reiterate our request for everyone to stay calm. The spread of this disease can be controlled with everyone’s cooperation.
