A business process outsourcing firm (BPO) in Cebu City was placed on lockdown after allegedly violating some quarantine protocols that led to the spread of the new cases of the coronavirus disease.
Three floors of a building at the Cebu I.T. Park were closed after seven employees of Aspire BPO contracted the virus. Aspire billeted their staff at their office during the strict community quarantines in the city.
The city government is investigating the allegations to determine whether or not to penalize the BPO company.
