Het ministerie van Volksgezondheid heeft bekend gemaakt dat er wederom een lichte toename is geconstateerd in het aantal Covid-19 besmettingen in Suriname.

De VSB roept haar leden op om alert te blijven. Ook bemoedigen wij onze leden om de veiligheid op de werkplek te blijven garanderen en werknemers te stimuleren richting vaccinatie.
