Brandix issues COVID-19 update on Minuwangoda facility

Brandix has issued a statement on the updates of COVID-19 infected employees following the discovery of a cluster in the Minuwangoda Brandix facility.

A total of 1,394 Brandix employees of the Minuwangoda facility have been tested for COVID-19 yesterday (05). So far, 567 employees have been confirmed positive.

“One of the main challenges that we have regrettably experienced throughout this process is that a majority of the positive cases have proven to be asymptomatic or lacking display of symptoms associated with COVID-19,” the statement said.

Brandix stated that they will continue to engage with the relevant authorities and are doing our utmost to look into the care of those affected while transferring their family members and close contacts to quarantine centers. They are also taking every measure possible to make them comfortable during their stay.

Brandix stated that they are appreciative of the support and counsel extended to them by the Presidential Secretariat, Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Health and Sri Lanka Army to navigate through this situation.
