Cases of covid have been reported in several city hall and Civis departments. These services therefore had to be closed to prevent any spread of the virus. A crèche in Ravine-des-Cabris is also available this Monday, and until further notice.
Several cases of Covid within the same service and it is the closure. This Monday, February 22, we must therefore expect some disturbances in the southern capital. To prevent the epidemic from progressing even faster, the mayor of Saint-Pierre, Michel Fontaine, announced the outright closure of several services at the town hall and at the Civis.
4 Covid cases including 3 variant carriers at the town hall
The Moulin à Café crèche in La Ravine-des-Cabris is closed until further notice, after the identification of a Covid case carrying the South African variant. The staff must therefore be tested now and will have to be tested again on D + 7.
It is also recommended to screen parents and children by saliva test if possible. The crèche will reopen after a positive opinion from the Regional Health Agency.
Four positive cases of Covid, including 3 cases carrying a variant, were identified by the land use and planning department of the Saint-Pierre town hall. The service is therefore closed until further notice, the staff will work remotely.
Report from Réunion la 1ère.
Saint-Pierre: several Covid cases in municipal services and a closed crèche
Positive cases and screening operation at La Civis
At la Civis, building B which notably houses the Center Intercommunal d’Action Sociale in Pierrefonds has been closed for 2 days. 9 people positive for Covid have been identified, most of them linked to the South African variant. The premises have been disinfected and the ARS is organizing tomorrow, Tuesday 23 February, a screening operation with the SDIS and mediators. About forty people are affected by this measure.
In the meantime, the positive Covid cases have been placed in isolation, as well as the contact cases. The reopening of this service will be done with the approval of the ARS.
Last week, Saint-Pierre almost became one of the new towns placed under curfew. With an incidence rate of 97 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, it was just below the threshold set at 100,000 / 100,000, unlike Salazie, Sainte-Suzanne and Etang-Salé, for which the measure entered into force at 10 p.m., from Thursday February 18.
