The controversial regarding the refusal of local schools to be used as quarantined centers in the County, specifically in Tappeta, seems endless despite the involvement of County and health officials to prevail on the residents to see reason for the establishment of the centers at these schools.

But report emanating from the County says, residents of the County have deployed ‘Mask Devils’ locally call ‘Country Devils’ in continuation of their protest to prevent their schools being used as quarantine centers, a situation they said would create health problem for the residents and students during the establishment of these centers in local schools and communities.

According to a Correspondent for the OK FM in the County, both the Superintendent, Nelson Quagueh and the head of the health team in the County, Philip Saah have prevailed on the citizens to see reasons for their action, and allow these schools to be used as quarantine centers.

According to the report, the ‘Mask Devils’ spent the night on the grounds of the selected schools in a bid to prevent anyone who will insist to force the usage of these schools for quarantine centers.
