TELONE employees have accused their management of violating Covid-19 regulations after the state-owned telecommunications company recorded positive cases at one of its offices in Bulawayo.
An employee who spoke to CITE on condition of anonymity claimed that at least 18 members of staff tested positive to the virus.
The worker further alleged that the management ignored their requests to have the premises shut down and fumigated.
TelOne Corporate Communications Manager Melody Harry dismissed the allegations citing that the company strictly follows Covid-19 regulations whenever they encounter such cases.
She explained that in the past week two members of staff tested positive and all necessary procedures were followed, including fumigation of the premises.
“Thus past week we had two cases and all the necessary procedures were followed. We (TelOne) contracted a reputable company to disinfect our premises whenever the need arises.”
Harry added, “Covid-19 has been with us for over a year now, there is no need for companies to keep such serious information as a secret. We value the health and safety of our staff members hence the company always ensures that things are done the proper way.”
