A JM professional tested positive for the new coronavirus. Before the first symptoms, the test that confirmed the infection was quickly performed, along the morning of the last day of the year.
While waiting for the laboratory result, the journalist in question was telecommuting. Anyway, the company and the newspaper’s management communicated the fact to all employees present in the newsroom at the end of yesterday morning. Later, a technical team from a specialized company was at the newspaper to do a complete disinfection of the space, from the newsroom to all other service areas.
This was the first confirmed case involving JM professionals. However, as a preventive measure, during the next few days screening tests will be carried out with other professionals and other protective measures were reinforced.
