Chief Public Health Inspector Grayson Hutchinson and Norman Scott, Chairman of the St. Catherine Municipal Corporation
The St. Catherine Health Department is facing criticism from the St. Catherine Municipal Corporation for what it says is the lack of information on steps being taken to prevent possible cases of the new coronavirus entering the parish via Port Esquivel.
Chief Public Health Inspector Grayson Hutchinson was asked about measures to monitor persons who use the port as a point of entry.
Mr. Hutchinson told the municipal corporation he was not at liberty to speak on the matter but the onus was on the Ministry of Health to communicate to the respective corporations.
However, he said a meeting will be scheduled with representatives from Port Esquivel to "monitor that situation."
But Norman Scott, Chairman of the St. Catherine Municipal Corporation, said his explanation was unacceptable and demanded that the information be made available by Monday.
