Air Namibia staff resume work, NAC still under lockdown


All staff at the Air Namibia head office have resumed work after they have been cleared of Covid-19, authorities have said.

This follows the immediate lockdown of the  Air Namibia and Namibia Airports Company (NAC), head offices and a return to lockdown stage one due to possible exposure to the virus.

The airline’s acting CEO, Elia Erastus expressed that voluntary Covid-19 testing was conducted on the alleged case(s) on June 21, 2020 and all results came out negative.

“Air Namibia’s head office building was disinfected on Sunday, 21 June and has since lifted the restrictions,” said Erastus.

Meanwhile, NAC’s head office remains closed as one of its employees lives at 77 on Independence Avenue, one of the places reported to have been visited by Covid-19 case number 33.

In an interview with The Namibian, NAC CEO, Bisey Uirab said most NAC staff members would continue to work from home till the 14 days of isolation are done while critical staff would go to the office, but in small numbers.
