St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) on Monday confirmed one new COVID-19 case.
The case arrived from the USVI and was quarantined due to the high-risk country of origin and has been isolated since receipt of their preliminary positive result, the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) said on Monday.
“The adult is doing well and has no symptoms typical of COVID-19,” NEMO said.
NEMO said the 52 passengers who arrived from Toronto, Canada on Air Canada 980 (AC 980) last Wednesday have been cleared from mandatory quarantine.
Six AC980 passengers who were determined to be high risk because of their country of origin or their occupation remain in hotel or home quarantine.
All of the 56 passengers who arrived on American Airlines (AA) 945 on Saturday remain in mandatory quarantine.
Eight COVID-19 cases recovered since Aug. 6 as indicated by two negative results of RT-PCR tests, NEMO said.
SVG has now recorded 58 COVID-19 cases, 55 of which have recovered. There are now three active COVID-19 cases.
“The public is urged to comply with all of the public health measures currently in place in St. Vincent and the Grenadines which are designed to keep COVID-19 contained,” NEMO said.
