Capitol rules out skeleton workforce

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz said yesterday that they will not implement a skeleton workforce system at the Capitol in Bacolod City, since there is no need for it, as of this time.

“The province will have a 100 percent workforce,” Diaz said, noting also that their employees are healthy, aside from those recovering at the Mambukal Mountain Resort in Murcia.

In August last year, the Capitol implemented a four-day work schedule and work-from-home arrangement after several employees were infected by Covid-19.

“We are good to go for another year. Everybody is motivated to work, and we will deliver our targets this year. There is no need for us to slow down, or adopt a skeleton force,” Diaz said.

Diaz also said that they will maintain the same protocols that they have been practicing, adding that these had been effective, so far. “Along the way, if we develop new strategies and adopt technologies to further make our workplace safer to employees, clients and visitors, then we will adopt,” he added.

He also reported that the disinfection of Capitol offices is being done on a regular basis, with frontliners being tested on 14-day intervals, especially those working in molecular laboratories, the Provincial Health Office, and the disaster management office.

Diaz confirmed that there are 42 individuals, including six doctors assigned at the Teresita Lopez Jalandoni Provincial Hospital in Silay, a medical technologist at the TLJPH molecular laboratory, a swabber assigned at the PHO, their respective families, and other government employees are now in isolation at the Mambukal Mountain Resort. He added that there are 111 Covid patients at the EB Magalona healing center, and four in Cadiz and 13 in the Silay quarantine facilities, respectively.*
