Supt. Solo Urges Respect For Curfew

By Chris Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU, August 23 (LINA) - Grand Gedeh County Superintendent Peter L. Solo has called on residents of the county to fully abide by the curfew imposed by the Liberian government for the security of the state.

Superintendent Solo told participants at the County Ebola Taskforce meeting  recently that the curfew will remain in force until further notice.

In a related development, the Grand Gedeh County Superintendent has called on citizens and travelers to Southeastern Liberia through the Cestos River Bridge to exercise restraint as the local government strives to address their problem.

Passengers on commercial vehicles have in recent times complained about check points along the road where they are asked to disembark for washing hands and Ebola tests.

They complained that the exercise takes hours, wastes time and was a health risk in the raining season.

Superintendent Solo’s appeal comes in the wake of reports that hundreds of passengers have been stranded on both sides of the Cestos River Bridge bordering Nimba and Grand Gedeh counties for about a week now.

The Cestos River Bridge is the gateway to Southeastern Liberia, including River Gee, Grand Kru, Maryland and Sinoe counties.

These checkpoints are manned by security and medical workers who conduct tests for the Ebola disease.

Grand Gedeh is one of several counties placed in the alert zone with no confirmed case of the Ebola disease so far, while the rest of the southeastern counties are in the preparatory zone.
