By BBN Staff: The Belize Tax Service Department (BTSD) said today that there has not been any sick-out at any of its offices.
The statement, issued today by the Director-General of the BTSD, follows information circulating on social media that the Tax Service staff were planning a sick out due to COVID-19 safety concerns after a staffer tested positive.
“It should be noted that there have been no “sick-outs” nor “walkouts” at the Department, nor are there any documented complaints by any officer of symptoms relating to COVID-19 as of the time of this release,” the BTSD said.
The department also noted that there have been incidents of staff members testing positive for COVID-19 at the Belmopan, and Belize City Branches, as well as suspected cases at the Corozal Branch. The BTSD says that in all cases, it followed the protocols established by health authorities, including the sanitization of facilities, and ensuring that the staffers who tested positive went into isolation.
” As far as the Department is aware there has been no death related to COVID-19 at the Orange Walk Branch,” the BTSD added.
