EAAB CEO Mamodupi Mohlala said the board was notified of the matter on Friday around lunchtime, and immediately advised all staff to vacate the building.

“An employee from the Community Schemes Ombud Service (CSOS) - which is housed in the EAAB office block – notified CSOS management that a relative had received her COVID-19 positive test results.

“It is unfortunate that we have to close offices two days after re-opening our doors to the public. However, the health and wellbeing of our colleagues and public is a priority,” Mohlala said.

EAAB compliance officer Oscar Mangole said the closure was a precautionary measure and that both EAAB office blocks will be sanitised before reopening on Monday, 13 July 2020.

Mohlala has again encouraged all employees to practice good hygiene habits, including washing hands properly and keeping a distance from people who are sneezing and coughing.

She assured stakeholders of continued service delivery and said EAAB staff would be operating remotely during the temporary closure.

Mohlala also encouraged stakeholders to continue using electronic means to contact the EAAB on the following email addresses:
