    Good Morning
    The office received confirmation that one of the officials and one client has tested positive for COVID 19. As both were in the office within the last 7 days the office has to be decontaminated. The 22nd, 25th and 26th floor needs to be decontaminated as the official has confirmed that in the exercise of his duties he was on all these floors. The SCM process in appointing a service provider to decontaminate has been finalised. If all goes well the office will open at the normal business hours.
    An update will be sent as soon as more info is available .
