The Ministry of Health can confirm that as of today, 8th March 2020, there are 22 persons who are self-monitoring with public health supervision. Also, five additional persons have been tested with results pending from the Caribbean Public Health Agency early next week. It should be noted that persons undergoing testing are under self-isolation. A Rapid Response Team will be created in collaboration with community healthcare professionals to increase capacity for detection of potential cases of COVID-19. Over the weekend religious organizations were sent guidance to share with their congregations to assist in spreading the word about preventive measures the population can take now.
