sabcNews24 reports that an employee at the SA Broadcasting Corporation’s (SABC’s) Sea Point office in Cape Town has tested positive for Covid-19.  

Staff members were instructed to self-isolate as health department protocols were implemented, the public broadcaster’s spokesperson Mmoni Seapolelo advised on Thursday.  Pointing out that employees would work remotely during this time, Seapolelo went on to indicate:  "Management has put in place business continuity measures and employees will continue to discharge their responsibilities remotely while in isolation.  In addition, the office has been closed for deep cleaning to ensure that it is safe for occupation by employees when the time comes".  The latest development follows two other SABC employees testing positive in March in Johannesburg and in the Northern Cape.
