The District Command Council (DCC) of Gert Sibande District Municipality (GSDM) continued to ensure monitoring and support for all government stakeholders within the District in an effort to collectively flatten the curve of the Coronavirus.
District Executive Mayor, Cllr Muzi Chirwa in his capacity as the Chairperson of the District Covid-19 Command Council led a screening and testing campaign of School Management Teams (SMT’s) at the Siphumelele Centre in Elukwatini on Monday 18 May.
The SMT’s members took turns and gathered in groups of less than 50 people to be tested and screened for the Coronavirus as part of their first day of return since the declaration of the national lockdown.
This follows a directive by the DCC that all School Management Teams within the District be supported and monitored to ensure smooth operations as the SMT’s reopened.
SMT’s are responsible for planning the timetables and strategize on how to receive the rest of the teachers and support staff in preparation of the re-opening of schools.
GSDM urges the public to continue to take precautionary measures in line with the government regulations regarding the fight against the Coronavirus.
