St. Vincent and the Grenadines now has three active cases of COVID -19 out of 29 recorded cases, the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) said on Thursday.
This follows the receipt of the second negative PCR result for one person from the Public Health Laboratory at CARPHA.
These results were included in a batch of results for 25 samples sent to the lab on Wednesday.
Four Disney Crew members who disembarked on June 15, also tested negative for COVID-19, NEMO said.
The entire group of 75 Vincentian crewmembers on board the Norwegian Cruise Line vessel, Oceania Marina which docked at Port Kingstown Thursday, tested negative for COVID-19.
Swabs for these PCR tests were collected on June 16, processed at the BEST-dos SANTOS Public Health Laboratory in Barbados and reported Thursday.
All of these nationals are scheduled to disembark today, Friday, and will complete a 14-day mandatory quarantine in their homes or a government approved facility.
“The public is again urged to maintain strict hand hygiene, cough etiquette, physical distancing in public spaces, smart mask use and strict adherence to quarantine and isolation instructions to ensure that we continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 in St. Vincent and the Grenadines,” NEMO said.
