Ghana’s strategic oil company, Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST) has reopened its head office following a successful disinfection exercise.
A statement issued by the Corporate Communications Department said, “BOST would like to announce for the information of the general public that it has re-opened its head office at Dzorwulu for business following a thorough disinfection of the facility after some staff tested positive for COVID-19.”
About 46 workers of the company tested positive for the virus after a mass testing exercise.
Initial reports suggested that a spouse of a staff at the I.T Department tested positive for the virus, forcing management to request all head office staff to test to know their status.
The statement requested all companies and individuals with urgent business to continue to utilise BOST”s virtual business platforms for timely delivery of services.
“Management would further like to assure the general public that our operations are not negatively impacted by the health risk and our staff, as well as visiting clients are fully protected by specific protocols set out by the Health and Safety Unit of the company.
“We count on your usual cooperation to effectively deliver on our mandate to ensure petroleum product availability and security for our country,” the statement said.
