The National Bureau of Investigation district office in Bacolod City will be closed for one week, after five of its employees tested positive for the coronavirus disease, its head, Renoir Baldovino, said yesterday.

Baldovino said the five employees detailed to them by a local government unit are assigned at the NBI-Bacolod administrative and clearance sections.

The office has 29 employees, including him, and nine of the regular personnel of NBI tested negative for Covid-19, he added.

Despite the negative test results, 20 employees volunteered to place themselves under quarantine, while those who tested positive are now in quarantine facilities, Baldovino said.

The NBI Bacolod office was closed starting yesterday and until Jan. 22 for disinfection, and will resume operations on Jan. 25, he added.

Baldovino said that contact tracing is ongoing for clients of NBI-Bacolod, who had transactions with the five Covid patients.

A disinfection team from the city Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office already disinfected the office of NBI Bacolod along 19th-Aguinaldo Streets. On orders of DRRMO cluster head Jose Maria Vargas, personnel also disinfected the workplace and premises of the Bureau of Internal Revenue in Brgy. Mansilingan yesterday.*
