Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
This is to inform you that five (5) members of our team at our business offices in Accra who were contact traced and tested by the Ghana Health Service (GHS) have tested positive for the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The affected team members, who were all asymptomatic, have been isolated in line with case management protocols. Officials of the Ghana Health Service are monitoring them and we can report that they are all hale and hearty and are responding well to treatment.
As part of ensuring the safety and well-being of our team members and our guests and to minimise any potential for spread of the virus, we have ramped up internal contract tracing, in liaison with the Ghana Health Service.
Together, we have ensured that team members who may have come into contact with the five (5) team members who tested positive have been tested and have gone into self-isolation for 14 days as required. In addition, all remaining team members are to be tested. Testing commenced on Monday, June 15, 2020.
Furthermore, thorough disinfection and deep cleansing of our studios, offices and facilities take place on a daily basis.
The measures, as indicated above, have been taken to enable us to protect team members, guests and visitors to our studios and offices. The measures notwithstanding, we wish to encourage all team members and guests to observe the enhanced safety protocols we have put in place in all our offices and branches.
Be assured that we are working with health authorities to implement all safety measures as required while discharging our responsibility to the nation, our audience and advertisers even in these difficult times.
YEN.com.gh also reported that some of the Kumasi Sports Academy ladies have resorted to the role of conductors also known as trotro mates, in sprinters so as to make ends meet because of COVID-19.
This has been revealed in a news report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Radio Rainbow's official website after an interview was conducted with the president of the academy.
According to James Asuming, the president, all activities of the academy had to stop because of the outbreak of COVID-19 in compliance with the safety protocols.
