The Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD) in effect from tomorrow Wednesday 8th July 2020 will close down its head offices in Accra temporarily for a fumigation exercise after some staff members have contracted the virus.
The need to close down all the head offices(Corporate/Subsidiaries/Divisions) in Accra is as a result of some staff testing positive for Covid-19 following a mass testing exercise.
The Ghana Cocoa Board in a press statement signed by the Chief Executive Officer of the Board, Hon. Joseph Boahen Aidoo explained that the fumigation exercise has become necessary due to “mass testing the organisation is currently undertaking which has resulted in some staff members testing positive for COVID-19.”
“All necessary arrangements have been made for the affected staff to receive the necessary medical attention and contact tracing is currently ongoing to enforce quarantine and isolation measures,” he added.
As stated in the statement the fumigation exercise is slated for Wednesday, July 8, 2020, to Friday, July 10, 2020.
“Normal work will continue without any destruction during the closure, as staff have been equipped with the necessary working tools to be able to work remotely from their homes”.
NOTE: All individuals and companies with urgent business with the Ghana Cocoa Board have been advised to contact its online portal.
