Municipality of Lixouri: Increased viral load in the area

According to measurements made in the sewage of the biological treatment in Lixouri on 16/2/21, there was an increased viral load, which indicates the existence of active cases of coronavirus.

We passed the results of the analyzes to the professor of analytical Chemistry of EKPA Mr. Thomaidis in order to guide us for further actions and we asked for a second test immediately in order to determine the trend of the viral load.

We recommend to the citizens great care and discipline in the observance of the protection measures and in the restriction of the movements and the contacts.

At the same time, in a teleconference with the Regional Unit of Kefalonia and the Mayors that was completed, it was recently decided to submit a request to EODY to send another Mobile Health Unit in Kefalonia in order to perform more tests on the general population. 

At the same time, KOMY, which is already on the island in the coming days, will visit the Municipality of Lixouri to carry out inspections.

Finally, according to the current legislation, the Region or the Municipalities are not given the right to decide on the closure of schools due to covid.

For this reason, all the Mayors submitted a request to the Ministry of Education to close all schools for a week, a request that has not been accepted until today.

Thus, on Monday 22/2/21, all the school units will operate normally, except for those where a decision has been made since last week to suspend their operation.
