The Ministry of Public Service and Administration in Kakamega County has given directives to administrators to sensitize residents on the safety measures to be taken in order to prevent the spread of corona virus.
The Administrators will be expected to provide daily reports on the progress of the virus on their individual stations.
Kakamega County CEMC Dr. Beatrice Sabana gave out the directives as she met the administrators from the 60 wards at the County government headquarters.
“As administrators you are expected to immediately form a committee that will move around the county and work closely with the national government team/s to ensure compliance to the safety measures that have been instituted by the government and report any covid-19 cases to the authorities in a timely manner,’’ Dr. Sabana said.
The CEMC also advised health professionals to sensitize the administrators on their roles to ensure that all business premises and government offices have basic hand washing materials to promote proper hygiene as a way of cutting down the spread of infections. She warned that failing to obey to those requirements will lead to closure of the business or office.
“We will be prepared to close down any business or office that fails to comply with these requirements as we are not ready to lose a single resident due to negligence of a business or office,’’ she said.
A recruitment of members of Village Councils is supposed to be conducted later this week at the ward level and will be conducted by administrators.
