COVID-19 Precautionary measures at PAM offices

Further to consultations with the WHO, the UN, national authorities and PAM medical advisors, the Secretary-General has taken the decision to step up precautionary measures at all PAM offices to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

In line with the decisions adopted by the UN, all PAM staff has been required to telecommute until further notice. The aim is twofold: to reduce physical presence at all PAM premises, while continuing to deliver on our mandate.

It is essential that we reduce social contacts to a minimum and follow the clear instructions of the World Health Organization and of relevant national authorities to minimize the risks of transmitting the infection.

The Secretary-General is hereby informing PAM Member States and partner organizations of his decision, and he continues to monitor the situation and will take further measures as needed.

He also expresses his solidarity, and that of all the staff of the Secretariat, with PAM Member States who are fighting COVID-19 and extends his most sincere condolences for their loss.
