One of the leading beverage companies in Ghana, Guinness Ghana Breweries Plc, has directed its employees to work from home with immediate effect in the wake of an increasing number of COVID-19 cases recorded in the country.

Guinness Ghana adopted the work-from-home policy to protect staff from contracting the novel coronavirus.

According to the company’s Corporate Relations Director, Sylvia Owusu-Ankomah said the decision taken by management are steps to ensure workers are not exposed.

“At Guinness Ghana, we are not taking chances on our employees. To that effect, we have effected the work-from-home policy, which will allow the employees to have the ability to work and function from home. The employees have been empowered with the tools of work such as laptops, chargers and data access to enable them to work remotely and seamlessly.”

“It is a precautionary measure which obviously has business implications, and if you think of the rate at which the virus is spreading, it is a decision that we need to get to, to ensure the safety of our employees,” she added.

However, the manufacturing factories in both Accra and Kumasi will continue to operate but will observe the social distance parameters as directed by President Alufo-Addo.

“Of course, by the nature of our business, we have a manufacturing line, and those factories continue to operate. The Kumasi and Accra factories continue to run. So, to that extent, we have made sure that workspaces are observing the social distance parameters,” she clarified.

Ghana’s novel coronavirus cases has now increased to 16. Five new cases were confirmed today by the Ghana Health Service and they’re all in the Greater Accra Region.

The world’s recorded cases of COVID-19 has risen to 255,143. About 10,448 people have died and 89,915 having recovered. There are 154,780 active cases so far across the world with 147,313 persons in mild condition and 7,467 in critical condition.
