SOME time ago, the San Roque Council put out to tender the work involved in supplying home helps to the elderly and those who have special needs.
Now that the town expects to move into Phase 2 of the lockdown shortly, it has become important to ensure that all frontline workers are tested for Covid-19.
The town’s mayor, Juan Carlos Ruiz Boix has confirmed that all 80 home help workers employed by the Eulem company have been tested alongside staff in nursing homes and all have given a negative result.
With more than 200 elderly people, (many of whom are considered to be at risk), this result is important for the community.
The municipality has received a significant number of test kits from central government and the next groups to be tested will be Local Police, Citizen Security Delegation and those involved with preparation and serving of food.
