EPHA Implements Stay at Home Advice

As of 31st of March 2020, most staff members of the Ethiopian Public Health Association (EPHA) secretariat are off workplace and stayed-at-home as measure for prevention of COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr. Alemayehu Mekonnen, Executive Director of EPHA, said only management members and few key positions personnel are working in office. Whereas, most employees are working virtually from home by being on standby for any urgent need.
“This public health measure is mainly aimed at reduction of the staff exposure to COVID-19 infection through avoiding the use of public transportation means.” He added


EPHA also provides additional mechanical washing material at the main entrance and hand sanitizer dispensers at the gate of its premise and each floor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


This hand touch free washing tool is mechanical and operated by feet. The soap is positioned on the left side and the water dispenser on the right side. The tool helps to avoid contamination through hands.
It is to be recalled that, EPHA has arranged an orientation on infection prevention to all staff for better understanding and implementation.
It is believed that, sister Associations and many other Civil Society Organizations will follow EPHA’s footsteps in prevention of COVID-19 pandemic.
