Coronavirus Infection Recorded with an Energoatom Employee

Covid-19 coronavirus infection was found in one of the employees of the Energoatom directorate, which is located in Kyiv. Doctors say, the patient’s condition is stable — he is in hospital. The circumstances under which he became infected are being clarified.

As a result, all workers who came in contact with the patient were sent to self-isolation. The office buildings of the Energoatom directorate are regularly disinfected, employees undergo mandatory temperature screening, receive personal protective equipment and antiseptics.

As we reported earlier, with the start of quarantine Energoatom organized an isolated passage to workplaces for critical groups of operational personnel without contact with other employees. They were settled in separate rooms of hotel complexes in satellite towns of nuclear power plants, from where they are delivered to the industrial sites of power plants by separate routes.

All of these workers work in personal protective equipment under constant medical monitoring of their health in the workplace and in isolation. Employees not involved in technological processes were transferred to remote mode.

In the structural subdivisions of Energoatom, all meetings were transferred to the mode of selector, web and Skype conferences, and all business trips were canceled.

In addition, according to the resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine № 40 entry and exit from the cities of Energodar, Netishyn, Varash and Yuzhnoukrainsk, where the NPPs are located, is limited for the time of quarantine.
