The Ministry of Health on Friday night (31 January 2020), took decisive action and ordered the quarantine of a Grenadian national who returned to the island from mainland China.
The individual met with health officials who carried out an interview, and on completion, was placed at a quarantine facility as per Grenada’s response protocol.
Health Minister, Hon. Nickolas Steele, who was present at the time and monitored the process, told the GIS, “We are taking such measures out of an abundance of caution, and as such the individual will remain quarantined for the mandatory 14 days, during which he will be constantly monitored.”
