The following is an announcement from the Ministry of Health & Social Development:
The Ministry of Health is notifying the public that a person who tested positive for COVID-19 attended the funeral held on March 27th, 2021 at the Sea Cow’s Bay Methodist Church.
All persons who attended the funeral should isolate for 10 days and contact the Public Health Unit from Monday, 29th March, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to schedule your test.
There is no payment associated with testing.
Persons who had their vaccine 4 weeks ago, will not be required to quarantine, so please give this information to the Public Health Officer, who will verify.
The Ministry of Health strongly recommends that unvaccinated persons get their vaccine as soon as possible to prevent you from getting COVID-19 or seriously ill from COVID-19 if you are exposed to an infected person.
Please note that vaccination after recent exposure to the virus will not prevent disease from occurring but future COVID-19 infections.
Please continue to wear your mask, physical distance (>6ft) and practice good hand hygiene to reduce your chances of being exposed to the virus or spreading it to others.
