Ona’s COVID-19 Response

To do our part in slowing the spread of SARS-CoV-2, we are closing our Kenyan offices effective March 14th and initiating a mandatory work from home policy.

As a company working in public health, we feel it is critical for us to begin the practice of social distancing to help reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our team, their families, and our communities. As a technology company, we recognize that we are fortunate to be able to continue to operate with our staff working remotely. We strongly encourage all companies, in the position to do so, to begin working remotely. Social distancing is critical if we hope to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, and we must all do our part.

We are strongly encouraging all of our staff to talk to their parents and any elderly or at risk members of their family to ensure they are educated about COVID-19 and encourage them to begin common sense measures to mitigate their risk.

We are also making available information we have compiled on COVID-19 to share with our team. Please feel free to use, modify, and distribute this communications resource if you find it helpful. Slides can be found here, http://bit.ly/33h8zwG, and are embedded below:

Ona is committed to using our technology and skills to support the COVID-19 response. We will be announcing our plan for this shortly.

As a society, we face an unprecedented challenge in many ways. Please plan, take early action, and stay calm. We can and will get through this together.
