The Minister of Health the Hon. Kim Wilson JP MP said, "As I said during last night's Facebook Live, I want to reassure members of the public that when a contact tracer reaches out to you, any information that you provide will be kept private and used only for outbreak investigation. Positive cases are allocated a case number; and that is how they are referred to during internal discussions.
Therefore I would like to ask persons who are contacted by our contact tracers to please be forthcoming with information as it pertains to your close contacts. We need this to be able to trace the potential spread of the virus…and potentially save lives."
