The Environmental Investment Fund of Namibia (EIF) has suspended its office working hours effective from Wednesday until 14 April, as part of the national response to curb the further spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
“To ensure that the fund complies with the national response measures announced by President Hage Geingob on Tuesday, the fund will be suspending its normal office operating hours and access to its national building,” EIF head of communication and corporate services, Lot Ndamanomhata, said in a media statement availed to NAMPA on Wednesday.
He said all EIF engagements will be restricted to virtual platforms, such as telephonic and teleconference means, during this period.
“The fund’s electronic forms of communication such as emails, social media, the website and communications department will still be available to handle all queries,” he said.
He added that EIF has resolved to adopt the additional measures in order to strengthen the fund’s preparedness and response to COVID-19 and to prevent further transmission of the virus within its areas of operation and jurisdiction.
EIF envisages that its production output, rate of response and efficiency will be reduced as a result of these measures, Ndamanomhata added.
