Nakuru COVID-19 frontline workers trained on mental-wellbeing

The County Government of Nakuru is offering mental health and psychosocial support to employees in the essential services departments in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The frontline workers in the health, finance and enforcement departments among others have also received training on COVID-19 surveillance, prevention and management.

The training program is pegged on the County Public Service Human Resource Manual to effectively counterbalance productivity with personal well-being.

It will also help in the development of more effective intervention mechanisms on specific incidences.

County Public Health Officer Mr George Gachomba said the County Government of Nakuru has set up reliable information channels to avert misinformation.

The employees will occasionally be updated on matters relating to the COVID-19 in Nakuru County and measures in place.

County Head of Preventive and Promotive Health Services Mr Gerald Maina added that the employees will be subjected to regular COVID-19 tests at their workstations.

“Please observe and enforce set guidelines such as limiting numbers of visitors in an office at a go, though handwashing and social distancing,” he urged.

Nakuru County has established a reporting system for suspected COVID-19 cases by calling 0724 320 853 and 0722 337 018.
