ROBERTSPORT, March 8 (LINA) - The National Civil Society Ebola Response Task Force is on an assessment mission in Grand Cape Mount County to ascertain whether the Ebola safety protocols announced by the Ministry of Education are being applied.
In January, the Education Ministry announced a code of protocols for a safe learning environment in all schools prior to the reopening of schools.
In an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Robertsports, Grand Cape Mount County Sunday, the head of the county assessment team, D. Sonpon Weah, said the protocols include hand washing, use of thermometers for temperature taking and safe drinking water on school campuses, among others.
Weah said the five-man team will visit all learning institutions in Tewor, Garwula, Porkpa, Commonwealth and Gola Konneh districts to find out if administrators of schools are in compliance with the protocols.
“The team also wants to find out whether the government has hired nurses for first aid treatment,” he added.
