Port of Spain, Trinidad, Sunday, May 16, 2021: The National Carnival Commission of Trinidad and Tobago (NCC) wishes to advise all stakeholders that one of our employees has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.
In wishing our colleague a swift and complete recovery, we also wish to reassure the public that the Commission will continue to all within our power and remit to ensure that we can continue to serve the needs of all our stakeholders and the national community during this time.
To that end, as we redouble our ongoing efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19 and keep our facilities safe for staff and visitors, the Commission has undertaken all required measures in response to the incident:
- Electrostatic sanitisation of all premises,
- Contact tracing
- Mandatory isolation from the office premises and the issue of quarantine recommendations for all primary and secondary contacts of the infected employee in accordance with Ministry of Health's published protocols.
The NCC further wishes to advise the public that the sanitisation exercise will be conducted at our Head Offices and our Queen's Park Savannah facilities on Monday, May 17th.
As a result, all NCC offices will be closed on Monday, May 17th, with regular office hours resuming on Tuesday, May 18th.
The implemented measures will run parallel to existing workplace protocols for COVID-19 that remain in effect, including social distancing, frequent sanitisation, remote work arrangements, and a significantly reduced employee and visitor counts on our compounds.
While it is not anticipated that the incident will adversely affect our operations and services, we wish to thank the public for its support and understanding at this time.
