Please note the following informative report regarding COVID-19 cases in some of the Upriver Terminals in the last couple of days:
Last Friday, an operator at Bunge PGSM Plant (Head of Warehouse) reported positive on a COVID-19 test. All staff in contact was isolated and are being tested for COVID-19 as control. The Union representing the operators, have declared that as of 0600 Hrs of the 26th, no personnel would not be attending the plant, and therefore loading operations would not be resumed until the results from the tests arrive. Whilst the firm reports that the results of the analysis were all negative, the Oil trade union and operators have maintained their decision until the isolates are tested for a second time. Berth remains free, with vessels at Roads awaiting on the seizure of the union's measure and resume operations.
On the 26th, an Operator of the Terminal came positive in the COVID-19 test. The Staff in contact with the man were isolated and tested for COVID-19. The plant had been operating normally, until last night, when the Oils Union declared that they would be undertaking the same measures as in BUNGE PGSM, resulting in Vessels not being able to berth for the time being, and if necessary will be redirected to COFCO PGSM Terminal.
A suspicious case arose on the 26th, and a COVID-19 test took place. The suspicious case and staff in contact are still isolated awaiting results. As the Terminal does not count with an Oil Staff, the situation could be different than the previously mentioned. Terminal remains operational.
ALL THE ABOVE INFO MENTIONED IS NOT OFFICIAL, AS TERMINAL HAVE NOT ISSUED ANY OFFICIAL COMMUNICATION.
