Air circulation issues are impacting operations at the building shared by the Departments of Workforce Opportunities & Residency Cayman (WORC) and Customs and Border Control (CBC) Elgin Avenue office on Friday.

Some members of the public were being turned away at the office.

Limited services are being offered due to the issue, according to statement from WORC and CBC.

“Unless it’s absolutely necessary, or an immediate need for today (Friday), customers are asked to come back on Monday once the issue has been resolved,” the statement said.

A temporary tent has been set up outside the WORC office in the interim until the issue is resolved.

“Customers can expect delays as there will be limited services offered on the outside by both agencies such as application drop offs and extension stamps. At this time, only check transactions will be accepted. Unfortunately customers doing cash, debit card or credit card transactions will not be able to be serviced at this time,” the statement added.

This is the second time in two weeks operations at the office were impacted by air circulation issues as last Thursday (24 Oct.) the office was shut down due to the same reason.
