The Department of Employment and Labour Mpumalanga, Mbombela Local Office has temporarily closed its office after an employee, who had been in contact with other 17 colleagues, tested positive to COVID-19.

The temporary closure of the Labour Centre will allow employees who have tested positive and who were in contact with the affected employees to self-isolate and for the necessary cleaning protocols of the office to be carried out as required.
