Malawi Enterprise Development Fund (MEDF) would like to advise its esteemed clients and the general public that the institution has decided to temporarily close the Lilongwe Branch situated in Mali Centre Building opposite Bridge View Hotel which is also the Regional Office for the Centre alongside the Mponela Branch in Dowa.
This has been necessitated by the fact the one of the staff at Mponela Branch started feeling Covid- 19 like symptoms and decided to go for testing at Ntchisi District Hospital where results indicated the sample was positive.
The same staff had been in contact with the Lilongwe Branch days prior to the Covid – 19 test. In view of this, management feels it would be safe to protect clients and the other staff by closing the two branches that had contact with the employee.
In line with MEDF’s Covid- 19 Response plan, the following measures will be undertaken during this temporary closure:
• All staff at the two branches will be on self-quarantine for 14 days as they are waiting for their results from the samples that the Lilongwe District Health Office has taken to determine their Covid- 19 status.
• The premises will be disinfected to ensure the safety of the clients and staff.
• Staff that test positive from the collected samples will only return to work upon registering full recovery and get certified by the Lilongwe DHO Office.
During this period, all MEDF clients should continue making their repayments through the FDH Bank and WhatsApp the receipts or seek direction from the Regional Manager and the Supervisors.
