20 Mar Message from SANSA CEO on COVID-19
Dear Valued Stakeholder, in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that has reached our shores and following the decision by our President, H.E. Cyril Ramaphosa, declaring a National Disaster, we assure you that we have taken every precautionary measure and will continue to do so to help limit the spread of the virus.
We wish to reassure you that our highest priority remains the health and safety of our Stakeholders and Team Members and we are implementing appropriate action to ensure that there is appropriate hygiene standards in all SANSA facilities for anyone using our facilities.
Unfortunately, we have had to postpone many of our planned meetings and events, including SpaceOps 2020. We have also restricted visits to our facilities by the public and external clients, as an added precautionary measure. We remain committed to ensuring that we will continue to offer services with minimal disruption to our customers; except where it is beyond our control.
We advise all our employees and guests based at our facilities to follow public safety guidelines and to cancel bookings if there is any risk of exposure to infection and utilise telephonic or web-based solutions to continue communicating remotely. Over the coming weeks, we will monitor developments closely and update our policies and processes to accommodate any national regulations, which we will duly communicate.
We wish for you and your loved ones to remain safe and free of infection until this pandemic has been contained and trust for your understanding during this difficult period.
