NKURENKURU - The people of Nkurenkuru are relatively adhering to Covid-19 regulations, including the mandatory wearing of masks when in public, town CEO Petrus Sindimba said this week.
According to the CEO, businesses and offices are also adhering to the set regulations, while no gatherings are being observed around town.
“The wearing of masks is really being seriously enforced by our shops and other establishments in our town,” he said. “If you don’t have a mask, you will not be allowed to enter the shop or any other establishments. Some shops are also having thermo guns to check the temperature of everyone entering.”
The town CEO maintained it was important for residents to conform to all social distancing and all other precautionary measures put in place to help curb the spread of Covid-19 in the country.
“In fact, we must have hand sanitiser with us all the time, keep the one metre distance and avoid unnecessary movements,” he said.
