KLG Investments Ltd., which produces Aquapure water, is the latest business to be hit with closure due to exposure to COVID-19, according to a statement from the company.
KLG said in the statement that it has closed its water depot on Bernard Road for deep sanitization after learning that one of its employees “may have tested positive” for the virus.
The company said that while the case is not yet confirmed, the depot will close out of an “abundance of caution”, and ensured that the company’s ability to safely produce water has not been affected.
“The depot, which is located in the parking lot outside Aquapure’s corporate office, was closed immediately upon management learning of the suspected positive case,” the statement noted.
Aquapure Chief of Operations Christian Knowles said the company has continually kept up its already strict sanitation protocols in order to reduce the risk of exposure.
“We have been and continue to follow all recommendations from the Ministry of Health to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees and customers,” Knowles said.
“The safety and health of our employees and customers is our highest priority. We are in close contact with the employee and will take additional safety measures as necessary.”
According to the company’s statement, the Bernard Road depot will remain closed until the cleaning and sanitization is completed and management determines there are no further health risks to employees or customers.
The company added that depots throughout New Providence remain open and the company’s delivery services and retail outlets remain operational.
