Bunyangabu District headquarters have been temporarily closed after nine staff tested positive for COVID-19. The offices were closed on Wednesday.

Jane Asiimwe the Resident District Commissioner who also chairs the District COVID-19 task force, says they have decided to close the offices to stop further spread of the virus as they also disinfect the offices.

She says they have instructed all district to test for the virus. Asiimwe also called upon the local community to remain adherent to SOPs as the virus continues to spread.

“We have registered some positive cases at the district, so we have disinfected the offices to ensure that if the virus is still within they are killed…” Asiimwe said.

Cue out: …ekiryarire kya corona.”//

Some of the staff immediately abandoned their duties when they learnt that some of their members tested positive for the virus.    

According to Christopher Kemba, the Bunyangabu District Health Educator, three of the cases have been discharged and the others are self-isolating.  He says the known primary contacts of that staff that tested positive have also been asked to self-quarantine as recommended by the Ministry of Health. 

Bunyangabu District has registered at least 33 Covid-19 cases with Kibito town council registering 22.
