We’re doing our part to flatten the COVID-19 curve!

Motus fully supports the governments of the countries in which we operate in their efforts to contain the COVID-19 virus. All non-essential operations will be closed in line with government imposed restrictions and guidelines, with certain employees working remotely in order to continue delivering to our stakeholders.

Our first priority is the health and safety of our people, our customers and all our stakeholders, including our extended value chain. We are proactively monitoring the guidance from health authorities and have well developed business continuity plans in place for dealing with such events. We believe we have the teams, the resources and the experience to navigate through this difficult time.
