WASCO worker tests positive for Covid-19

MASERU-AN employee at the Water and Sewerage Company (WASCO)’s headquarters in Maseru has tested positive for Covid-19.
In a statement yesterday, WASCO said the worker was sent and admitted to a Covid-19 quarantine health facility for treatment.

The company says it has also evacuated all staff housed at the head office to stay at home while the premises have been put under total lockdown.
WASCO said “several interventions have been set in motion and appropriate measures put in action” in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organisation (WHO) Covid-19 protocols.

“Fumigation of the offices has been mobilised,” the statement reads.
“All walk-in Customer Care Services have been suspended until further notice,” it said, adding that “customers and the public at large are requested to use other walk-in facilities”.

Customers have been asked to call the company’s toll free no 800 22 011 to report bursts and for other queries.
The company says water and sanitation services are central in the fight against Covid-19, particularly the washing of hands.

“The company understands the importance of the provision of these services to the customers and the public at large. On the same token, WASCO has to be committed to the safety of its staff and all external stakeholders,” the statement reads.

WASCO called on all Basotho to exercise utmost care in line with the Covid-19 regulations.

The WASCO worker is among the 35 cases Health Minister Motlatsi Maqelepo announced yesterday.
