Statement from the Health and Community Services Department

02 November 2020

​“We have been advised that there have been six confirmed positive cases of Covid-19 in one group of healthcare workers in the department. These individuals work in a care setting, supporting independent living facilities in the community.

“All direct contacts have been informed and are now self-isolating. They will be tested in accordance with our protocols.

“To protect the identities of the patients they support and to respect their privacy, we are unable to provide more detail.

“As announced at this morning’s press conference, some 60% of the Island’s workforce, including healthcare workers, are being asked to join an enhanced testing programme to protect themselves and others.

“They will undergo regular PCR swab testing, at frequencies based on the risk of infection and onward transmission, to ensure we proactively seek out the virus and prevent COVID-19 clusters. 

“This will protect the health of Islanders and keep both our essential services and the Island’s economy running.”
