Environmental Health Officers are continuing to visit affected communities on Mainland St. Vincent to assess the sanitary conditions of the environs, following the trough system that caused flooding and landslides during the Christmas season.

A release from the Ministry of Health says the Officers are also distributing water purification tablets to residents.

The release says more than 250-thousand of these tablets have been given to householders, individuals and business entities for purification of water, primarily for drinking purposes.

The Ministry says there has already been full public acceptance of the use of these tablets and there have been no reported outbreaks of water related diseases to date and has commended all citizens for their continued efforts to embrace safe water practices.
