This weekend, the National Commission for Risk Prevention and Emergency Care (CNE) began with the distribution of water storage tanks in different educational centers that had access to vital liquid problems.
In total, a total of 11 tanks were delivered to the Kindergartens and Educational Centers of Tibás, Alajuelita, Maternidad Carit, Barrio Cuba, San Francisco de Dos Ríos and Curridabat.
This Monday the delivery will continue in five educational centers located in the province of Cartago. Specifically at the Domingo Fausto Sarmiento School, San Diego Pedagogical Unit, Quebrada Del Fierro School, Calle Girales School and the San Vicente-La Unión School.
Through a mapping of the educational centers, the CNE develops a series of actions to supply drinking water to the centers that present problems, based on the diagnosis of the Ministry of Public Education (MEP).
Additionally, a hiring of tanker trucks to supply water will be carried out in educational centers that have tanks installed. This mainly taking into account that the school canteens will be open and school personnel working.
The president of the CNE, Alexander Solís, pointed out that all these measures seek to mitigate the risk factors and reduce the cases of contagion by COVID-19 and work in close coordination with the MEP and the Institute of Aqueducts and Sewers to address the needs based on the identification of the centers with the greatest drinking water supply problems.
Additionally, the CNE hired a company that will be in charge of deep cleaning in schools and public buildings, based on a sanitary order.
La CNE recuerda que está disponible el numero 1322 para cualquier duda y orientación sobre la forma adecuada de atender la emergencia del COVID-19.
