VINLEC closed after ‘building user’ tests positive for COVID
The St Vincent Electricity Services Ltd (VINLEC) building was closed to the public yesterday, October 7, after a “user of the building” tested positive for COVID-19.
Communications Officer Tamara Job-Sprott, confirmed to SEARCHLIGHT that there is an internal team in VINLEC who is responsible for sanitisation for “safety reasons in the event we hear of any exposure relating to Covid.”
When the information was received that morning that the user had tested positive for the virus, the staff had already arrived to work.
The building which is the utility company’s headquarters, was therefore closed off to the public and staff to facilitate the sanitization, and staff members could be observed standing outside the offices located at Pauls Avenue to avoid the scent of the sanitising products.
On completion of the sanitization, staff were sent home for the remainder of the work day.
In the meanwhile, customers were allowed to use the kiosk located to the side of the building to conduct their business.
Regular work resumes today, October 8.
