HARPER, August 18 (LINA) - Acting Maryland County Superintendent Nathanial Toe, has ordered local officials to remain in the county until the state of emergency expires.
He said they can only leave as a result of an emergency.
Superintendent Toe also ordered that all persons traveling to the county will only be allowed to enter if they prove negative after being tested for Ebola at the Kronoken Ebola Testing Center in Webbo District, River Gee County.
Superintendent Toe gave the order Monday when he addressed a cross-section of citizens at a meeting held at the county administration building.
He disclosed that these measures were necessary because local officials needed to get actively involved in the fight against the Ebola disease.
Superintendent Toe said the movement of citizen also needs to be restricted to avoid the spread of the virus.
In a related development, the acting county superintendent has ordered a massive clean-up campaign in Harper to give the city a face lift as the nationwide Ebola fight continues.
Maryland County is among counties that have not recorded any Ebola case.
