After employees suffered a corona infection, the shipyard group Vard closed the shipyard in Bratvåg in Sunnmøre. Not sure when full operations will be carried out in the yard again.
After a supplier working in a yard was diagnosed with corona, the yard began testing employees on Wednesday. After a quick test, six workers were diagnosed with infection.
-The management therefore took the initiative to take action, but after consulting with the local infection control agency and NIPH, it was decided to temporarily close the yard for system testing and prevent the spread of infection.
It wrote about the courtyard in the press release.
The yard has already started the so-called PCR test on everyone who worked at the yard last week. This means that 250 employees were affected. The plan is that people with negative test results can continue to work as long as they have an answer.
-The goal is to get everyone back as soon as possible. However, when it will happen depends on how quickly we complete the test, said Hege Akselvoll of Aftenposten/E24.
She is the communications manager of Vard.
