Office of Clr Rojas closed as staff turned positive of COVID-19


After almost a year of being on the frontline in processing locally stranded individuals, the office of Councilor Cindy Rojas announced yesterday that her office will be closed after a member from her team got infected of COVID-19.

In a Facebook post, Rojas confirmed that Robert Jan Torres tested positive. Rojas described Torres as her main man who has played a tremendous role in helping bring home thousands of LSI.

According to Rojas her office will be closed tomorrow, Monday, until further notice, as the rest of the office staff go on quarantine after being exposed to Robert on a daily basis.

But she assured that they will be working on a “work from home” basis to continue to process the SPASSes of returning residents. She added: “Our communication lines will still be openly active to receive questions and concerns from our Returning Residents.”

For those who come in close contact with Torres, Rojas advised them to self-quarantine and observe for any covid like symptoms.

Meanwhile in Capitol, Provincial Administrator Atty. Rayfrando Diaz said that there may be some delays in the issuance of SPass of returning residents in Negros Occidental after members of the team were for to self-isolate due to confirmed positive cases from member of the Provincial Incident Management Team.

Diaz along with Gov. Eugenio Lacson and other officials were swab this morning at the Capitol grounds.
