CARPHA Takes Immediate Mitigation Steps in Response to a Staff Being Tested Positive for COVID-19

Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, 28 April 2021. The Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) wishes to inform all of its stakeholders that one of its members of staff at its Port of Spain office was identified today as a positive case for the COVID-19 virus.

 

In the interest of safeguarding the well-being of our dedicated staff, and visitors to our office, we have undertaken the necessary national measures of isolation of the positive case, sanitising of workspaces, and sampling, testing and quarantining of contacts.

 

The Chief Medical Officer of Trinidad and Tobago was immediately informed and updated on the measures taken, for forward action of contact with the positive case by the Ministry of Health.

 

The individual with the COVID-19 virus is currently receiving appropriate care, and we wish our staff member a speedy recovery.

 

At this time, because all measures are in place and being followed according to the CARPHA Workplace Protocol for COVID-19 we can assure you that this event will not affect the operations or services provided by CARPHA.

 

The CARPHA Workplace Protocol for COVID-19 will continue to be reinforced, and the local Ministry of Health guidance is being strictly applied.   The Agency remains committed and available to serve the public health needs of all its Member States and provide support in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
