A member of the committee of missing persons (CMP) tested positive for coronavirus, an announcement said on Tuesday.

The CMP said they had received confirmation of the case earlier in the day, and that all the staff members in close contact with the case have been placed in isolation for 14 days.

“Contact tracing has been conducted of all staff members who the individual has come into contact with during the last week,” they said.

Since the beginning of the outbreak of Covid-19, as a standard precautionary health procedure, all CMP staff members engaged in bi-communal activities have been undergoing PCR diagnostic tests every two weeks.

The committee’s bi-communal operations at the CMP Anthropological Laboratory and at field excavation sites across the island are ongoing.

“Nonetheless, effective immediately CMP’s in-person meetings are suspended for one month and are replaced by online meetings during this period,” they said.
