Sixty-one people from eight public day nurseries have completed training in preparation for reopening after the facilities were closed to limit spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

A statement from Government on June 25 said: “As day nurseries and pre-schools prepare for reopening soon, the Environmental Health Department of the Ministry of Health and Wellness is conducting training in the COVID-19 protocols for all operators and employees.

“This week, 61 workers attached to eight of the public day nurseries under the aegis of the Child Care Board, completed the training. The group comprised supervisors, assistant supervisors, nursing assistants, general workers and cooks.”

Deputy Chief Environmental Health Officer, Ronald Chapman, explained that information shared during the training sessions related to the direct and indirect transmission of COVID-19, a review of the protocols devised for the day care facilities, and advice on how they should be implemented.

According to the statement, Chapman said an important segment of the workshop was the question and answer session, which gave participants an opportunity to have concerns addressed.

Training has also been conducted for operators and employees of private day nurseries and pre-schools.

The Environmental Health Department expects to complete training within the next week for staff of the remaining seven public day nurseries.

Government day care facilities were originally scheduled to reopen on June 22, but this was postponed. (BGIS)
