Please note that the Somali Stock Exchange (SSE) has taken some precautionary measures regarding the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19. The government health authorities have been asked to share the message hereunder with all visitors and external participants of the capital markets in Somalia.
As you may know, the novel coronavirus COVID-19 has now also reached Somalia. Some regions which are not yet affected have started to report any possible cases of coronavirus and urged the public to be ready for it.
As a precautionary measure, if you have travelled to one of these affected areas within the last 14 days, or recently have been in contact with persons from such areas, we would kindly ask you to reschedule your visit to the Somali Stock Exchange offices to a later time. We would advise our members and listed companies to take same actions by advising their visitors and guests to postpone their visit. This would help us greatly to play our part in preventing the spread of the virus in Somalia.
Please note that these measures are only temporary. The SSE is monitoring the situation and will adapt its measures accordingly.
