THE MINISTER FOR HEALTH AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT -
EASTER WEEKEND NOTIFICATION
Today as Minister of Health, I will give an update of COVID-19 test results; the receipt and administration of additional AstraZeneca vaccines; the decision of Cabinet to reduce crowd sizes for all events, and the strong, very strong advice to consider the cancellation of this weekend's group or crowd activities and to observe ALL HEALTH & SAFETY PROTOCOLS.
The number of active positive cases is now reported at 13 and this figure continues to slowly climb as the hard working Public Health team conduct their contact tracing exercises. While no drastic actions are required at this time, it is prudent to allow the mass testings scheduled for the 6th through the 8th of April to be completed and avoid any inadvertent spread of the virus.
Our sea borders are on schedule to reopen on Thursday 15th April and all efforts are aimed at maintaining as safe a territory as possible. I am in contact with Health agencies and Health Ministers throughout the region and the common theme is VIGILANCE. Remember DO NOT PROCRASTINATE--- VACCINATE.
