All cases, following testing for COVID-19, were placed in quarantine awaiting their results.
They have since been placed in isolation at the Respiratory Hospital.
It can be noted that there is a distribution of cases to additional districts, which points to the
widening in transmission of the virus across the island. We must remain vigilant. We must
remain committed to doing all within our control to limit the spread of COVID-19 amongst us.
Everyone needs to act responsibly to reduce our exposure to the virus.
Anyone with respiratory symptoms like cough, fever, shortness of breath, sore throat should not be at
work, socializing or in any public place. It is important that people who are unwell seek care
promptly at the closest Community Respiratory Clinic.
The Ministry of Health once more reminds everyone to:

  • wash and sanitize hands often throughout the day
  • always wear a mask while in public
  • maintain a separation of six feet from others while on public, which is about two arm’s
    length apart
    The Ministry of Health and Wellness will continue providing updates as new information becomes
