The National Home Builders Registration Council (NHBRC) satellite office in Tzaneen is temporarily closed after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.
The office will resume its normal operations on 6 July 2020.
The developers, contractors, home builders and housing consumers in the area are advised to use the Polokwane or Thulamela offices.
“As part of our precautionary measures, all the affected employees based in that office will also be in self-isolation for 14 days, as per the COVID-19 regulations,” said NHBRC acting CEO Otsile Maseng.
The regulatory body urged its clients to only visit the offices when it is necessary, for instance, collection of certificates and completion of technical assessments.
“Each of our offices has established a COVID-19 task team to ensure the continued safety of our employees and customers, and all visiting our offices are requested to cooperate with the measures put in place,” said Maseng.
