The CEPEP Company Limited (CCL) has taken the decision to temporarily suspend field operations as of today until further notice.
The company said the decision is in a bid to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and well-being of its workers.
CEPEP currently manages approximately 10,000 workers comprising mainly of single-parent families and the company assured that it will compensate these workers during the temporary suspension of field operations.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic started in March 2020, the Company has been partnering with the Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force, Ministry of Health, and the University of the West Indies to provide ground maintenance services for five (5) COVID-19 step-down facilities.
CEPEP said it stands ready to mobilize and assist the above-mentioned organizations when required.
