The President of the Republic, Carlos Alvarado Quesada, and the First Lady, Claudia Dobles Camargo, will resume their agendas for face-to-face activities, after a PCR test that detects the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes the COVID-19, both with negative results.
The Minister of Communication, Agustín Castro, reported this Saturday that “the test carried out by the president and the first lady is an additional precaution, after having teleworked this week.”
Alvarado Quesada during these days of teleworking, which began on Wednesday, November 25, included the virtual presentation of bill No. 22,333 “Reform of the Law for the Protection of Citizens from Excess Requirements and Administrative Procedures, Law No. 8220 and its Reforms); the act of commemoration of the National and International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women; the session of the Emergency Operations Center (COE), body for coordinating the actions to be taken to face the COVID-19 pandemic and preparation of Executive Decree No. 42723-MP that calls the bills to be discussed in the Legislative Assembly in the extraordinary sessions process.
Both the President of the Republic and the First Lady teleworked from Wednesday to Friday as an additional precaution, in the face of indirect contact, to avoid risks to third parties.
