KNYSNA NEWS - In a Knysna Rotary-initiated project, Knysna Municipality last week took to the Knysna Taxi Rank to clean and disinfect many of the surfaces and taxis in their latest effort to combat the spread of Covid-19.
The initiative was made possible by Knysna Rotary Club who secured funding from their donors.
This allowed a team of workers in fully-kitted personal protection equipment (PPE) suits to walk around the taxi rank and spray the sidewalks, public bathrooms, and some taxis.
This latest step in curbing the spread of the Coronavirus forms part of the two parties' ongoing projects in and around Knysna.
The municipality has also installed hand sanitisers around town with informative posters scattered around town as well.
Further disinfections are set to take place at other ranks in the Greater Knysna area, on selected sidewalks, in communal ablution facilities, and around clinics and spaza shops.
