A release from the agency advised that the closure is a precautionary measure. It said a comprehensive sanitising of the offices is being conducted.

The offices will reopen on Tuesday. 

However, JCA says all its other offices, including its locations at the air and sea ports, will remain open to the public.   

It says it will continue to provide all online services and that staff will continue to liaise with customers under its teleworking regime.
