Last week, some of our staff at our Kampala branch reported feeling unwell with mild flu like symptoms. As a precautionary measure, we requested that they be tested. Interim results from Ministry of Health have been received and three (3) of our staff have so far tested positive for Covid-19.Managing Director Mahmood Omar’s statement
The statement continues, “The 3 employees have been referred to Mulago Hospital for further observation and treatment, while the rest of our Kampala branch staff, in line with our safety procedures and Ministry of Health guidelines, have been requested to stay at home under the mandatory 14-days quarantine as the situation continues to be monitored.”
This has prompted the company to temporarily close their Kampala branch at First Street, Industrial area as advised by health officials and strongly enforce the government’s SOPs at their Head office in Namanve Industrial Park as well as the rest of their Countrywide branches, which remain open.
