The NTSA had earlier announced the move to fumigate all 17 regional offices within 10 days as an exercise to curb the virus spread as well as conform to the stipulations set by the government.
The authority, however, indicated that all their online services will be available during the fumigation period thus encouraged clients to access services online.
“We shall progressively move to fumigate all our 17 regional offices in the next 10 days. We shall notify you 48 hours in advance before the fumigation of each regional office,” said NTSA.
First on the program last month were the Upper Hill and Likoni road offices which were closed for three days.
