Management of Ghana’s largest Waste Management company, Zoomlion Ghana Limited has recalled its staff to work barely 24 hours after directing them to go home.
According to ABC News‘ checks with the company, the one-day shut down was geared toward disinfecting all its offices in Accra as part of measures to abide by President Akufo-Addo’s directive that all companies should as much as possible, enhance sanitary conditions and ensure the practice of personal hygiene at their places of work.
The situation of the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide has forced companies to take extreme measures in order to protect their staff and clients.
In Ghana, although no company has been directed to shut down, President Akufo-Addo has advised that as much as possible, people should enforce social distancing among themselves to avoid the spread of COVID-19 after Ghana confirmed four more cases of the virus on Sunday, March 15.
A check around some spots where Zoomlion workers usually operate such as the Nkrumah circle, Accra High Street and Accra Central on Tuesday morning showed that staff were back to work.
Subsequent information from a source at the company suggested the directive to return to work had been issued Tuesday morning.
The global confirmed cases of the COVID-19 currently stands at 183,107 and deaths recorded so far is 7,175.
