GWANDA Rural District Council has with immediate effect shut down their operations after three of their staffers tested positive to Covid-19.
The development was confirmed by Gwanda Rural District Council, Chief Executive Officer, Ronnie Sibanda.
“Yes, it is true that the GRDC is closed because two of our staff members tested positive to Covid-19. I received a call while I was in Harare informing me about the developments. Following the Covid-19 regulations, we were left with no option but to adhere to the regulations. Health officials will be going to sanitise the premises while I will be going for testing at Gwanda hospital,” confirmed Sibanda.
However, a source close to the development said the cases have increased to three.
Contacted for a comment, Matabeleland South Provincial Medical Director, Dr Rudo Chikodzere said she was yet to receive the report.
Meanwhile, Gwanda councillors have been placed on self-isolation after three of the councillors tested positive to the virus.
This is developing story, we will update it as we receive more information.
