Are you planning to visit Muranga County Government headquarters? You will have to postpone your visit for two weeks since the offices will remain closed following increased cases of Covid-19.
In a circular to all Muranga County staff headquarters, County Executive Member for Health Joseph Mbai directed the staff to keep away from the headquarters to protect themselves from contracting CoronaVirus.
In a circular seen by our news desk dated August 24, Mr Mbai directed the Public Health department to fumigate the offices immediately after the staff leaves and after two weeks.
“Public Health is hereby directed to fumigate the offices immediately and repeat the same after 14 days across all the County Headquarters offices,” read the circular signed by Mr Mbai.
He noted that the staff of the devolved unit across the County have also contracted the virus but the numbers from the headquarters are alarming.
At the same time, Mr Mbai noted with concern the relaxation of protection protocols on Covid-19 precautions a move he attributed to a number of staff testing positive for the disease.
The closure of Muranga County Government offices comes barely a week after a staff from the County Public Service Board tested positive forcing the staff to be sent home awaiting the results.
