Baguio worried over Covid19 case spike in BPO firms

Republika

With the soaring number of Covid19 cases in business processing outsourcing (BPO) establishments in Baguio, the city government has reminded call center companies to strictly follow health protocols imposed by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) in all their activities.


Data showed that there were 255 virus cases in various BPO firms in the city recorded this month that triggered Mayor Benjamin Magalong to call the attention of the call center firms to revisit their safety measures and to adjust and innovate where they can be more effective in preventing the spread of the virus.


The city also sought more cooperation from establishments to adopt the contact tracing measures despite having their own CT teams.


To be more effective, it is recommended as well that testing is to be done using pooled methods and antigen testing.


Based on the agreement, the companies will be subjected to random and surprise inspection by the city sanitation team.


The call center companies will also update their human resource database and have their employees register with StaySafe and Baguio in myPocket applications for easier contact tracing.
