The patient was notified and was found to be aboard a local cruise operator with twenty-five other passengers and two crew members. The boat had travelled to Star Fish Point, North Side.

Public Health reassures the public that initial contact tracing protocols have been carried out and all aboard the vessel have been placed in isolation. The twenty seven passengers will be tested in three days and will be further advised by public health officials.

Please remain isolated with your households until you are given advice that you are released.  In order to complete contact tracing, we will need to have the results of all of those aboard to understand the situation, and after that, we will advise everyone when they can be released. Thank you again for your assistance,” said Medical Officer of Health, Dr Samuel Williams –Rodriguez.
