DUBAI – The Philippine Overseas Labor Office in Dubai (POLO Dubai) reopens on Tuesday (February 23) following a two-day shutdown over a suspected Covid-19 risk.
POLO Dubai closed for two days from February 1 to “undergo extensive sanitization procedures after possible exposure to Covid-19”, it said in a statement.
The office, which serves Filipinos with labor concerns, said its premises “will be thoroughly disinfected in those two days to ensure the health and safety” of everyone.
POLO Dubai advised those who recently visited its premises to undergo testing for Covid-19 as a precaution.
This is the second time that Philippine government services were suspended in Dubai due to a Covid-19 scare.
Last January, the Philippine consulate also closed for two days after a suspected case of Covid-19. ICA/Expat Media
