The Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) has shut down its head office at Dzorwulu in Accra.
The decision to shut down the facility follows reports that at least up to 46 of its staff have tested positive for the COVID-19.
“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, 6th July to Monday 13 July 2020.
“This has become necessary due to mass testing of staff carried out by the company at the head office in the wake of 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 the Corporate Communications Department of BOST said.
The statement also assured that BOST will fumigate all the entire office to ensure safety.
It further assured that the closure will not “negatively impact the operations of the company since all staff has the needed facilities and enhancements to work from home within the period.”
BOST joins a number of institutions which are closing their facilities to stop the spread of the disease.
Ghana has so far recorded 20,085 confirmed cases of the disease with 14,870 recoveries and 122 deaths.
