As promised, the Ministry of Health is hosting training sessions for owners, managers and employees of food businesses on the South coast to ensure proper hygiene practices are maintained in light of the ongoing sewage problems in the area.

While mitigating measures put in place by the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) have resulted in an end to the sewage spills over the last several days, Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Kenneth George said that the Ministry would continue to do all in its power to ensure that public health was protected.
