COVID-19 forces temporary closure of Free State clinic

Staff Reporter

Dr Che Guevara Clinic in Metsimaholo Local Municipality has been temporarily closed for decontamination after one of its staffers tested positive for COVID-19.

In a brief statement, the Free State health department advised the Metsimaholo community to use nearby clinics while they await a mobile clinic to be deployed.

“The public is advised to make use of other clinics nearby which are Amelia Mobile Clinic and Harry Gwala Clinic,” the department said.

“A primary healthcare bus is to be deployed there from Thursday, 18 June . . . until the decontamination work is done and completed.”

Meanwhile, the provincial police commissioner, Lieutenant General Baile Motswenyane, has announced that the Bethulie police station, which was closed over the weekend, is now fully operational and the public can now access all services there.

The station was temporarily closed after one of its officers tested positive for COVID-19 and it had to be decontaminated immediately.

“All health protocols have since been followed and the affected members have been quarantined or isolated accordingly,” Motswenyane said in a statement.

“Bethulie police station started operating again on Wednesday.”

She said primary and secondary contacts of the positive member were also tested and are back at work after they received their results and those who are still awaiting results are currently in self-isolation pending the outcome of their results.

“Our members are on the forefront and are susceptible to contracting the virus,” Motswenyane said.
