A total of eleven positive cases in coronavirus have been detected in the last hours in the aromatics plant, in the refinery of Cepsa located in the municipality of San Roque.
A situation that, for the moment, does not alter the operation of these facilities, whose activity is normal despite the seriousness of this health situation because, according to sources from the Works Council, the virus has focused only on that plant and because the protocol applied by the company immediately has been tremendously effective.
The cases were detected as a result of a contagion suffered by a worker of said plant that was detected by the SAS. From there, another ten colleagues, having been in contact with him, also tested positive ”, he assured Fernando Barba, from the union section of UGT, who has sent a message of “tranquility” because these people “They are in good health, with a low viral load and practically no symptoms.”
The Covid-19 monitoring commission that the Works Council created at the beginning of the pandemic is monitoring the company’s actions daily to stop the spread of the virus. Fernando Barba assures that CEPSA has acted “responsibly” to guarantee not only its operation but also and above all to protect the health of its workers. “The unions always ask for more measures but currently all facilities are being disinfected by an external company and firefighters are also working in entry and exit areas or control rooms,” he said.
The company’s management has decided to take a step back in its de-escalation plans at the San Roque refinery, moving from an advanced level to a high level again.
