The Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MHMS) has detected a number of COVID-19 positive test results from recent international arrivals. The public has therefore been asked to reinforce and uphold COVID-19 safe measures.
Any persons with flu-like illness can get tested at the nearest health clinic. If tested positive please home isolate for at least 7 days before coming out of home isolation.
During home isolation, avoid close contact with any person in your household and as much as possible, keep all eating and drinking utensils, clothing separate from the rest of the household.
Should you experience worsening of symptoms, such as coughing, breathing difficulties, flu etc. please go to your nearest health clinic immediately for medical treatment as we now have medical drugs available to treat COVID-19 patients.
For our communities bordering other countries, please reinforce and uphold COVID-19 safe measures, as increased border crossings can potentially spark reinfection of COVID-19, or bring new variants into our communities and spark a third wave of COVID-19 infection.
While the COVID-19 situation has greatly improved, the threat is not yet over. The Ministry of Health is mandated to take care of public health and part of this is providing timely information to the public to take necessary measures to preserve their health, hence this call for the reinforcement of COVID-19 safe measures.
