Can you spray that again?

At the direction of the Chief Secretary and National Disaster Committee, the RMI EPA organized a vector team to decontaminate incoming cargo.

All the mail that enters the RMI is subject to decontamination by the EPA vector team, said EPA General Manager Moriana Phillip. Mail arrives on pallets that teams spray. Then this large volume of cargo is unloaded and broken up into several piles, then sprayed again to ensure as much coverage as possible to prevent any possible coronavirus transmission. 

Phillip also advised people picking up mail from the post office to take precautions with their own decontamination procedures at home and to wash hands frequently.
