Day Centre reopens

The Formentera Department of Social Welfare reports that the island’s adult day care facility has reopened for normal service today after six staff in close contact with a Covid-19-positive beneficiary tested negative for the disease and completed a mandatory period of isolation. The Formentera Day Centre closed on 25 February following news of the individual’s positive test results, with users and employees of the centre screened wholesale as a result. The screenings came back negative, as did two rounds of PCR tests administered to the close contacts.

Service beneficiaries and staff have all been vaccinated, which reduces the odds of a Covid-19 case becoming serious.
