The Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD) has shut its headquarters in Accra after some staff of the facility tested positive for the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease.
The offices according to a statement from COCOBOD signed by Chief Executive Officer, Joseph Boahen Aidoo, will be closed from Wednesday July 8, 2020 to Friday, July 10, 2020.
“This has become necessary due to the mass testing the organization is currently undertaking which has resulted in some staff members testing positive for COVID-19,” the statement read in part.
The statement continued that arrangements have been made for the affected staff to receive the necessary care.
“We wish to assure the general public that during the period of the close down, normal work will continue without any destruction as staff have been equipped with the necessary working tools to be able to work remotely from their homes. All individuals and companies with urgent businesses should contact us via our online portal,” it said
