Parliament Issues Guidelines To Be Followed By House Amid Ebola Outbreak

Bethel | 95timefm


The Speaker of Parliament, Ms Anita Among, yesterday issued a string of guidelines aimed at containing the spread of Ebola disease to legislators, staff and all other persons visiting the House.

The guidelines followed consultation with the Minister for Health, Dr Jane Ruth Aceng, before the resumption of Parliament’s month-long recess.

Plenary sessions will have only 100 MPs while others will contribute to the debates or any other proceedings through virtual means and these will run for about three hours while persons accessing Parliament will be subject to body temperature check-ups, tasked to wear a facemask and ensure that there is frequent hand washing as well as sanitising of hands.

The Speaker Among also tasked the Minister of Health officials to frequently update Parliament on the Ebola situation in the country.
