Community members in need around the island are to be provided with free protective gear aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19.
The Ministry of Health and Wellness recently received a donation of reusable masks from the Sandals Foundation to assist community members with maintaining and adhering to the protocols for managing COVID–19.
The reusable masks will be made available at the various wellness centres around the island and will be distributed to people who have limited or no access to masks.
Chief Medical Officer Dr. Sharon Belmar-George expressed heartfelt gratitude to the Sandals Foundation for the donation and says it will play a significant part in protecting the health of our citizens during this COVID-19 pandemic.
Public Relations Manager of Sandals Grande Judy Deterville says the foundation is dedicated to making the health of the community a priority and responding to the situation of COVID-19 in Saint Lucia.
The Sandals Foundation made a donation of 1500 masks valued at $10, 000 EC dollars.
