The Meat Board of Namibia has closed its head office in Windhoek as a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, but will maintain critical services to assist producers.
The office closed its doors on Monday and will reopen on 26 August, it said in a statement issued this week.
During this period, the Meat Board NamLITS helpdesk, producer registration and stock brand offices will be closed.
Some services continue
The NamLITS online ear tag order procedure has been streamlined to allow producers to order and pay for ear tags electronically and hassle free.
The Meat Board classification services will be unaffected and will continue as long as the export abattoirs are operating, the company said. “The Meat Board border personnel will be unaffected and continue rendering border inspection services, while the finance division will prepare to do payments on Fridays.”
The trade division will continue to issue import and export permits and the IT division will ensure 24-hour internet capability during this period.
The company added that it will do its utmost to maintain critical services and assist where necessary during this period.
