    What kind of half-statement is this? If it was closed as a result of COVID-19, then say so… In that way if anyone visited the clinic, they would know to isolate… At some point BVIHSA has got to begin looking out for more than themselves.

  2. WEW says:

    You can’t get the health care for covid because the health care clinic is closed because of covid. Ah yes only in the BVI

    To anonymous
    BVIHSA was given an ORDER from the ministry to close down the clinic until further notice which means all staff in that department are to remain at home!!! BVIHSA DID NOT make that call!!!! And I agree with you about letting persons know especially those that utilized the clinic last week for services…but everything is always a secret around this place especially Covid positives it’s like testing positive is a secret….people NEED to know Who they are. Just to safe guard themselves and family I tested positive before and EVERYBODY I came Into contact with I told that I was positive I did what I had to do and I am fine today

    😂 @wew u sound dumb……..if at all you knew anything about the clinic you wouldn’t have made such an ignorant comment…. The clinics DO NOT treat covid patients there is a special ward in the hospital for that and if you think you might have covid symptoms or been in close contact with a positive case you go to the Tent up by the emergency room to get tested for that NOT at the CLINICS. So please refrain from making ignorant comments and get your facts first

    • Really ? says:

      I’m the absence of pertinent information propaganda will always flourish. So who’s dumb and ignorant? Let the Ministry say what the h**l is up or let rumors fly.
