Citing the increase in the number of coronavirus cases and the WHO's classification of the outbreak as a pandemic, the FCC said effective immediately it has closed its facilities to visitors unless they have special permission from the Office of the Managing Director, which will only be granted if there is a "clear operational necessity."
The Office said the FCC will continue to get its regular work done, and told stakeholders to set up any necessary meetings by teleconference.
The closure is until further notice.
