Margibi County Inspector, Tarr Sackie, said Government took the decision Saturday, March 14, 2015 based on the advice and consent of the County Health Team.

Government imposed quarantine on Gaygba Camp and Papa Village in Gibi District during the height of the Ebola crisis.

The two villages are approximately located seven kilometers away from the provincial Capital, Kakata, Margibi County.

Inspector Sackie, said:” After weeks of effective monitoring process, it was necessary to lift the quarantine on the two villages to allow the free movement of people.”

“It is about time that all Liberians continue to adhere to the preventive measures instituted by health authorities if Liberia must be declared Ebola free,” he noted.

Recently, the Government announced that Liberia could be declared Ebola free by April 13 this year if there is no new Ebola case within the 42-day incubation period as prescribed by the WHO.

During the height of the Ebola crisis, the Liberian Government also quarantined the Township of West Point and Dolo Town, respectively to prevent the spread of the virus.

The Town of West Point is located southwest of Monrovia, while Dolo Town Town is located in Lower Margibi County on the Roberts Field high way.
