One new case of covid 19 recorded on Friday. This brings the total number of positive cases on island to four.
This one additional case is an imported case.
Three of the four covid-19 cases remain in home isolation pending results. Samples were sent off to CARPHA out of caution that the new cases could be one of the new variants.
These results according to the CMO could take another week.
To date, six thousand seven hundred and eighty persons have been vaccinated in the past two weeks.
