Six business process outsourcing (BPO) firms in Bacolod City were served notices of violation for failing to register their employees to the city government’s contact tracing system.
Emergency Operations Center (EOC)’s deputy for medical data and analysis, Dr. Chris Sorongon said these BPOs were registered in the Bacolod Contact Tracing (BaC-Trac) system, an app developed for quicker contact tracing of confirmed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) positive patients in the city. However, these six BPOs are not using the system for their employees.
While Sorongon did not name the five other BPOs, he confirmed that Transcom was in the list.
Transcom recently logged 14 new COVID-19 cases in its facility.
