GRENADA-COVID: Man Leaves Quarantine Unknown To Officials

Last Updated on October 12, 2020 by Admin

Ministry Of Health – The Ministry of Health confirms the diagnosis of the 25th positive COVID-19 case on mainland Grenada.
This latest case is the first in three months, and is the first imported case since the full reopening of Grenada’s borders on October 1st.
The confirmed case is a St. Andrew resident, who returned from Canada, and who, regrettably, left quarantine, unknown to health officials, before he was given the all-clear to do so.
In an effort to be thorough, and to ensure accuracy in reporting and decision- making, the individual was tested and retested to confirm his status, and all known contacts of the individual were informed, including all passengers on last Monday’s Air Canada flight.
It is important to point out that the other passengers on board that flight all had negative PCR test results after their 5-day quarantine period in Grenada, but will be retested out of an abundance of caution, as per the science of transmission and incubation.
