BOST closes down its head office after 36 staff test positive for coronavirus

The Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Limited (BOST) has on Monday, July 6, 2020, shut down its head office located at Dzorwulu after numerous staff tested positive for coronavirus.

The coronavirus cases were detected after the company embarked on a mass testing of staff.

A press release copied to GhanaWeb said, “BOST would like to announce for the information of the general public that it has closed down its head office at Dzorwulu in the Ayawaso West Municipality from Monday, 6th July to Monday 13th July 2020”.

“This has become necessary due to a mass testing of staff carried out by the company at the head office in the wake of a staff of the IT department testing positive for the virus. After the mass testing, a number of the staff tested positive and arrangements are being made for their treatment,” the statement added.

GhanaWeb sources reveal that about 36 staff have contracted the deadly Coronavirus.

The oil company has therefore called on the Ghana Health Service to get in touch with these affected persons for treatment.

BOST has however assured staff of fumigating the office to ensure their safety when work resumes on July 14.
