Humacao’s driver services office closed due to Covid-19 case
Operations, appointments suspended at Cesco facility after employee tests positive
SAN JUAN — Puerto Rico’s Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTOP by its Spanish initials) suspended operations at its Driver Services Center (Cesco by its Spanish acronym) in Humacao, on the eastern part of the island, after a Covid-19 test of one of its employees came back positive.
Starting Thursday, people with a pre-scheduled appointment at the Humacao Cesco office should receive a message through the TurnosPR online platform stating their appointment will be rescheduled at another Cesco office, said DTOP agency chief Carlos Contreras.
“We followed the applicable protocols as soon as we found out about the positive Covid-19 case, suspending operations immediately, ordering every employee to get tested, and closing the facilities for disinfection,” Contreras explained.
The Humacao office is slated to reopen only after each employee tests negative for the coronavirus and the facility is properly disinfected, he added.
