Wangua said the positive cases in the FM100 office had caused misunderstanding among staff for the risks it might have on their health and their jobs. There were also reported threats made against staff who tested positive for the virus.
Wangua said staffing levels would be reduced and shift rotation introduced. He added that this would not affect salaries of the staff whether found to be Covid-19 positive or not.
The FM100 office was closed for a day while sanitisation and fumigation took place. It reopened 24 hours later. Kalang Advertising, which operates FM100, is a subsidiary of Kumul Telikom.
FM100 was Papua New Guinea's first commercial radio station launched in 1982 as Radio 2FM. It was renamed Kalang FM in 1987. The station became a subsidiary of Telikom in 1998 and took on the name FM100.
