Covid-19: Philippine labour office in Dubai closed due to virus risk
Residents who visited premises on Sunday advised to get tested for Covid-19.
The Philippine Overseas Labour Office (POLO) in Dubai will remain closed on Monday, February 22, as part of a two-day sterilisation procedure after suspected exposure to Covid-19.
In an advisory, the office advised clients who had been to the premises on Sunday to “get tested for Covid-19 as soon as practicable”. Operations had been suspended from yesterday.
Those with appointments during the period of closure had been contacted directly, while those who require immediate assistance are urged to dial POLO hotline 050 652 6626 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other who wish to get in touch with the Overseas Workers Welfare Adminstration may call 050 558 5536 or e-mail email@example.com.
This is the second time that an office of the mission has been closed for disinfection because of a Covid risk. In January, the Philippine Consulate in Dubai had suspended operations for two days.
