Trainees For Compliance and Quarantine Task Force Equipped With Information On Health and Safety Protocols

Basseterre, St. Kitts, September 11, 2020 (RSCNPF): Senior Health Environmental Officer within the Ministry of Health, Glenville Leader conducted a session on the COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols with the trainees as part of their two-week course.

“I’ve been given the task to come here at the Police Training Complex to train officers that will be involved in quarantine upon reopening of our borders. This is very critical and we depend upon them for the success of this initiative, recognizing that once the boarders are open, the risk is heightened…we have decided that we will have to increase our surveillance at the quarantine stations hence, we are training these persons to teach them how to protect themselves, their families and the visitors alike,” said he after his session on September 10.

Mr. Leader disclosed that the decision for the opening of the borders was in an effort to balance healthcare and finance and that the Ministry of Health and all other relevant stakeholders are “doing everything in our power to ensure that we do not have an outbreak of coronavirus within St. Kitts and Nevis.”

Mr. Leader’s presentation covered the symptoms of Covid-19, how the virus can be spread, methods to prevent the spread of the virus, cleaning and sanitization and health inspection techniques.

Throughout the next week, other health officials and members of the National Emergency Operating Centre (NEOC) will be involved in this ongoing training that is being primarily facilitated by the instructors at the Police Training School to ensure that these individuals are ready to execute their duties on the frontline.
