The department headquarters will be closed from Monday July 27 to Friday July 31. The decision was made in response to two confirmed COVID-19 cases at Ministry headquarters.
The office building will therefore not be accessible to employees or visitors in the coming week. This period will be used to completely clean and disinfect all areas.
The persons with whom the infected employees have come into contact are also traced. The decision taken by the minister is on the advice of the Minister of Health, Amar Ramadhin, and the Public Health Agency.
During this period, headquarters will only be accessible for urgent cases, taking into account the COVID-19 measures.
