BJMP personnel tests positive for Covid-19


A woman personnel of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) tested positive for the coronavirus disease 2019 or Covid-19, its spokesman confirmed on Monday.

According to Jail Chief Inspector Xavier Solda, the employee was working from home before the test confirmation.

Solda said that she was a paralegal officer at the Quezon City jail male dormitory.

The female officer has not been physically reporting to work since March 21, Solda said.

A work-at-home set up was allowed since the employee was a paralegal officer with a responsibility to monitor cases of Persons Deprived of Liberty (PDL) before the court.

“Aside from the nature of her work, she was allowed to work at home during the jail lockdown because she has a pre-medical condition,” Solda said in a statement.

The employee has asthma, hypertension, and diabetes, he said.

Contact tracing among the staff the last time she visited the jail is ongoing.
