The Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC ) has released a statement announcing that it will shut its doors for a minimum of two weeks due to possible exposure to the coronavirus of some of its staff members.
“The CTICC has been informed through a tracing process that certain staff members have been exposed to individuals who have had close contact with patients that have tested positive for the coronavirus.
“The individuals that the staff members have been in contact with have gone into self-isolation and are following the advice of health authorities,” the statement read.
The statement went on to say that the CTICC does not have any scheduled events for the next two weeks due to government’s restriction on events of more than 100 people.
During the 14-day closure the rest of the CTICC’s staff will also self-isolate.
CEO Taubie Motlhabane said: “Our priority will always be the safety of our staff, clients and partners.”
