(PRESS RELEASE) – The Castries Constituency Council (CCC) has activated its preparedness plan amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The plan initiated by Mayor Peterson D. Francis is to ensure high level preparedness by team members and tenants of the CCC amid the worldwide coronavirus outbreak.
As part of plan, management will sensitize, advise and implement numerous precautionary measures across all departments and tenants.
Council will also work closely and in partnership with all agencies and stakeholders to ensure proper coordination.
“In my view, fear and panic are more hazardous than the virus itself,” Mayor Francis said.
“We know that based on the current trend we must have a plan of action. Apart from our in-house health bulletin and risk management plan, we will install a tap with running water for public use outside Council’s office for washing of hands. I have also authorized the purchasing of necessary supplies for our sanitation department, increased the regularity of cleanings at city facilities and required departments to prepare response procedures for the continuation of operations.”
“With misinformation and scandal becoming an outbreak of its own, I wish that persons do not get caught up in everything they see online. While we all do our part, the real responsibility lies with the citizens. Please rely only on the most accredited information available from officials of the Ministry of Health and Wellness,” Mayor Francis said.
