The Labour Department took to Twitter to announce the temporary closure of several Limpopo-based labour centres, due to confirmed COVID-19 cases and the need to decontaminate the workspaces.
The Department of Employment and Labour took to Twitter on Tuesday, 12 January 2021, to circulate a statement on the temporary closure of several labour centres in Limpopo, which are closed due to confirmed COVID-19 cases. This week marks the first week that labour centres have been fully operational since 2020, with a total of four labour centres already being closed, namely, the Lebowakgomo, Modimolle, Polokwane and Tzaneen labour centres.
While recognising the difficulty of people in the rural area to use online services, the Provincial Chief Inspector, Phaswane Tladi noted, “Due to the rising number of daily infections, most of our offices will close. This comes in the wake of large numbers of clients who have lost their source of income during the pandemic are visiting our offices for relief.
“We urge our clients to be patient during this difficult period, as the closure will temporarily affect services rendered by the department. Where possible, the department urges clients to utilise online services on www.labour.gov.za or, alternatively, visit other offices nearest to the closed centres.”
The labour centres have been earmarked to reopen on Thursday, 14 January 2021.
