COVID-19 is a rapidly evolving global issue. This is a critical time, and the top priority of the Director-General of the United Nations Office at Nairobi remains the health, safety and security of all UN staff and their families.
The Director-General (DG), Zainab Hawa Bangura, has called on everyone to support those who are vulnerable, following the directions from public health and medical experts, and work together to protect themselves, their families and local communities.
UNON is taking a range of actions to limit the spread of COVID-19 at UNON and support UN staff. To that end, the DG invoked Phase II, the Emergency Mode, of the COVID-19 Contingency Action Plan which means, among other measures, many staff are telecommuting.
