The Wenchi Municipal Assembly has aggressively kicked start the enforcement of directive on wearing nose/face masks in the Municipality to contain and prevent the spread of the novel Coronavirus.
This came to light during a meeting between the Municipal Chief Executive Dr. Prince Kwakye Afriyie and the general staff of corporate organizations of the Assembly, after an earlier emergency meeting by the Municipal Security Council (MUSEC) held on Monday 15th June, 2020.
The Chief Executive briefed the staff on the decisions and measures in respect to the Nose wearing directive by the President of the Republic as announced in his 11th COVID-19 Address. He urged all staff to comply with the directives and ensure that members of the public and clients who visit the offices adhere to the protocols. Dr. Kwakye Afriyie admonished the staff to set good examples worth emulating devoid of “family and friends” considerations, since they have become ambassadors and front liners in enforcing the protocols.
The Municipal Coordinating Director and Chief of Staff of the Assembly Edward Abazing advised staff to wear masks through out their administrative duties and errands in order not attract sanctions.
In response, the staff have shown their readiness to enforce the directive to the latter as a matter of urgency. Re-usable nose masks were distributed to all staff as a measure to protect themselves first.
Effective Monday 15th June, 2020, wearing of nose/face masks has become mandatory.
Service would be rendered to only members of the public in masks. All other safety protocols such as frequent hand washing, use of hand sanitizers, amongst others, were also emphasized to be continually observed.
The general public is hereby advised.
Stay safe. COVID-19 Is Real.
