Ministry of Health investigating whether travelers from South America have negative COVID-19 tests

The Ministry of Health is investigating whether a group of South Americans who recently entered the country had negative COVID-19 tests, Dr. Merceline Dahl-Regis, health consultant in the Office of the Prime Minister, confirmed on Thursday.

Negative COVID-19 tests are required for all foreigners entering the country.

Dr. Dahl-Regis was asked to confirm whether a group of foreign workers provided the requisite test results and how many of them landed.

“Information was just recently passed to me that indeed we had a landing of nationals from South America that came in,” she said during a Ministry of Health press conference.

“We are investigating this as we speak.

“But I want to give you the assurance that health will require that each individual who landed present with a negative PCR test. And if it doesn’t meet the qualifications, we will do… the test to be sure that we have no transmission and if there is a positive test, we will deal with it.

Asked to clarify if they took COVID tests, Dr. Dahl-Regis added: “We are told that they have had and we await receipt of those tests.

“Once received we will determine that they are were good, valid, positive or negative.”
