Reactivity! During operation we encountered that one of the employees got COVID-19. As work must continue, I had to look for an alternate option as a group of employees had to quarantine till they get their negative PCR test. Immediately I found an alternate option for drivers through our agent to drive bus and car to drop other employees at the site area. Everything was arranged and there was no distraction during the operation. Also, follow-up was done with quarantine employees to ensure that they are well looked after.
Thank you very much Tanvi !
