Road Fund has suspended its operations for two weeks following a flu outbreak which has hit the organisation.
The Fund issued a statement noting that its operations will halt from Monday to monitor the spate which seemed to be increasing quite rapidly within the institution’s personnel.
“The break will commence on July 06 and full services will resume on July 20,” the statement read.
It added: “The break is line with SARS-CoV2 protocols, both local and international which state that people with flu like symptoms should stay at home to avoid infecting others.”
The statement notes that following the recommendation by the Road Fund Management, the board of directors resolved to shut down offices for two weeks to enable staff to fully recover from the viral infections.
“This was also seen as the best precaution in ensuring the safety of employees in the short and long term,” the statement notes.
“During the break, the office will be thoroughly fumigated to disinfect the whole premises and a mass testing of all staff will be conducted to ensure that those infected and affected by the viral infection get treatment and will be fully recovered by the time the office reopens on July 20.
“The Fund will remain functional remotely during the precautionary shutdown period,” the department said.
