EAAB CEO Mamodupi Mohlala said the board was notified of the matter on Friday around lunchtime, and immediately advised all staff to vacate the building.

“An employee from the Community Schemes Ombud Service (CSOS) - which is housed in the EAAB office block – notified CSOS management that a relative had received her Covid-19 positive test results.

“It is unfortunate that we have to close offices two days after re-opening our doors to the public. However, the health and wellbeing of our colleagues and public is a priority,” Mohlala said.
