BDO received reports that an employee from one of our operational offices in San Juan City, Metro Manila has tested positive for Covid-19. The employee did self-quarantine on March 10. However, the bank was informed of the confirmation on March 16.
All employees within the contact trace of the affected individual are now under self-quarantine. During this challenging time, BDO will be providing said employee with every support and guidance.
The bank is in close coordination with the Department of Health (DOH) in taking the necessary actions. BDO is likewise performing detailed contact tracing with all employees and other parties that the infected employee may have come into contact with.
The affected office area, as well as the common spaces such as the elevators and toilets, are being deep cleaned and disinfected. We have also advised all our employees to be cautious about their wellness and hygiene to boost their immune system.
BDO will continue to closely monitor the situation to ensure that the well-being of employees, customers and suppliers is protected. (PR)
