The Department of Inland Revenue (DIR) wishes to advise the public that its Exuma Office is temporarily closed for deep cleaning and sanitizing following a staff member testing positive for COVID-19. Business owners are reminded that access to services are still readily available online and through our Customer Service Call Center. The DIR implemented its COVID-19 response plan yesterday when the positive result was reported. The Ministry of Health Surveillance Unit was contacted to initiate an assessment
and contact tracing and all national COVID-19 protocols are being followed to ensure the health and safety of staff.
“Our prayers are with the entire staff body and the people of Exuma, who we continue toserve remotely,” said Gaynell Rolle, Acting Controller of Inland Revenue. The public is urged to continue following the Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 prevention guidelines, including: wearing a face mask when you leave home; keeping your distance, at least six feet from others and washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
