PNOC RC would like to inform our colleagues in the Energy Compound that we have one (1) new confirmed COVID-19 case.

RC-05 begun to experience coughing and fever on 10 July 2021. As the symptoms persisted RC-05 was advised by the doctor to undergo RT-PCR testing on 21 July 2021. Said employee was also diagnosed to have pneumonia. The RT-PCR test result came back positive today, 23 July 2021. RC-05 has been admitted to the hospital this afternoon.

The same employee last reported for work on 21 June 2021. Considering it has been more than 30 days since RC-05 physically reported for work, no internal contact tracing will be conducted. PNOC RC remains committed in safeguarding the health and safety of the workforce and our stakeholders. We uphold the strict implementation of the Minimum Health Standards for the prevention and control of COVID-19 in the workplace.

We will apprise you of any development accordingly.
