The Ministry of Health and Wellness is aware that the sudden spike in cases has raised alarm and
created tremendous concern among our citizens. This is indeed understandable. However, it is
important that we all remain focused on sticking to infection prevention and control measures. By so
doing, even if we unknowingly come into contact with someone who is infected with the virus, our
adherence to the recommended measures can protect us and others from the infection. By keeping to
the infection prevention and control guidelines the spread of virus from one person to another can be
stopped. The Ministry of Health makes a strong appeal to everyone that if you are experiencing
respiratory symptoms which include cough, sore throat, fever, please promptly seek care at the
closest respiratory clinic.
We are now in the midst of the traditional Jounen Kweyol weekend. However, this year we need to
make a small sacrifice for the benefit of all, by limiting our celebration to members of our
household. By so doing, we will be protecting the health of everyone.
The Ministry of Health and Wellness will continue providing regular updates as new information
becomes available.
