The continuous sanitisation of our facility due to the high influx of persons on a daily basis have been taking place as well as protecting our points of contact within our organisation. In addition, we are continuing our education via social media based on our official bulletins from Ministry of Health advising our burgesses on the the precautionary measures on the COVID-19 as much as we can.”
