DH's Yaumatei Maternal & Child Health Centre closed for disinfection tomorrow
     The Department of Health today (July 27) said that its Yaumatei Maternal & Child Health Centre (MCHC) learnt that a COVID-19 patient had earlier visited the MCHC. The MCHC will be closed for thorough cleaning and disinfection tomorrow (July 28). Staff is contacting affected clients to reschedule their service appointments.
     ​The patient accompanied a client to the Yaumatei MCHC on July 17 and had a mask on during the whole visit. The patient was confirmed with COVID-19 infection on July 23.
     In view of the current epidemic situation, MCHC has stepped up infection control measures, including temperature screening before clinic entry, limiting number of accompanying carers etc. At present, all MCHC staff members are wearing mask at work and practising hand hygiene at all times, and no staff members have developed symptoms or are confirmed cases. The DH is highly concerned about the COVID-19 situation and has reminded all staff again to maintain personal hygiene and be vigilant at all times. If feeling unwell, they should seek medical attention immediately.
