NetLink said it is working with said contractor to assist the Ministry of Health in contact tracing efforts. 

The company has temporarily suspended all works that require visits to homes or offices, as an additional safeguard to protect the public, their employees and business partners.

"We are also reaching out to affected parties with current service orders to inform them of the suspension."

The temporary suspension will be lifted after a review of the existing precautionary measures, and appropriate enhancements are implemented.
