Ivan Site Testing Update

There is an ongoing effort being coordinated between local and international multi-sectoral agencies to address concerns at the post- Hurricane Ivan temporary hurricane debris storage and processing site, Block 55 Parcel 57, in Frank Sound. Government undertook to provide families with an update on progress thus far. To this end, we have followed up with PAHO & ICENS this week and they have confirmed that a number of tests have been completed. However a number of tests still remain to be completed or are underway.

Until testing and the review of data have been completed, families who have been tested have been advised to continue the precautionary measures recommended by the Public Health Department. We hope to provide a further update in the upcoming weeks and remain fully committed to seeing this important process completed. In closing, we wish to publicly thank the families involved for their continued patience and cooperation.
