MASVINGO– Five court officials at Masvingo have tested positive to Covid-19 following tests conducted at the workplace on Thursday.
The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests were carried out in Court 5 and there were 25 officials who were tested. Those who tested positive are now in self-quarantine.
The tests indicated that B.1.1.529 (Omicron) was detected in their bodies.
Masvingo Provincial Magistrate, Enias Magate confirmed the matter to The Mirror but referred questions to Chief Magistrate, Faith Mushure.
Masvingo Provincial court last Friday closed around 1pm to allow fumigation of the courts and offices.
Efforts to get a comment from Mushure were futile as mobile was not reachable. –https://masvingomirror.com
