Bus drivers will be among the next group of high-risk personnel to be tested for Covid19 as the Ministry of Health works to ensure that the island is free of active Covid19 cases.

Two new cases were diagnosed on Monday after close to two months without.

The Health Ministry was making headway testing personnel considered to be on the frontline of health and other essential service delivery in the meantime.

Dr Irving McIntyre, Hon Health Minister for Health and Wellness revealed late last week that the ministry has “continued PCR testing for our frontline workers and all persons exhibiting symptoms which fit the case definition. Thankfully they all have been negative so far.”

He went on to add that “such case identification activities will be extended to other high-risk groups to include nursing homes, prisons and bus drivers.”
