Forty-six employees of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST) have tested positive for COVID-19.
The company has, therefore, closed down its head office at Dzorwulu.
All employees of BOST at the head office have been asked to work from home temporarily, following the development.
This was after the company mass-tested the staff.
The Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited would like to announce for the information of the general public that it has closed down its head office at Dzorwulu in the Ayawaso West Municipality from Monday, 6 July to Monday 13 July 2020.
“This has become necessary due to a mass-testing of staff carried out by the company at the head office in the wake of a staff of the IT department testing positive for the virus. After the mass-testing, a number of staff tested positive and arrangements are being made for their treatment,” a statement from BOST said.
The statement noted that BOST will be fumigating its offices to protect staff when work resumes.
The company also assured that the development will not “negatively impact the operations of the company, since all the staff have the needed facilities and enhancements to work from home within the period.”
