Opposition Leader Marlon Penn has announced he is in 10 days of self-isolation “in adherence with the government’s COVID-19 protocols”.
Penn gave that indication in a social media post on Thursday.
“Office hours at my District Office will be postponed until Wednesday 7th April. Sorry for any inconvenience,” Penn said.
While he did not explicitly state why he is in isolation, but BVI News understands that it is in connection to last Saturday’s funeral service in Sea Cow’s Bay that a COVID-19 patient attended.
Our news centre further understands that other legislators such as Premier Andrew Fahie, Health Minister Carvin Malone, and Second District Representative Melvin ‘Mitch’ Turnbull are also in isolation because of the said funeral.
