The two latest COVID-19 positive cases have opened a can of worms for health authorities here in relation to the testing protocols for persons arriving in the country.

The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) in a release dated yesterday said that two Swedish nationals arrived in the country on the 19th August 2020 via Grenada with a negative test result but later tested positive.  

It is not yet clear how long after arriving in the country did the two individuals find out they were positive.

A letter sent to staff of Mandarin Oriental, Canouan by General Manager Duarte Correia confirmed rumours that the two cases were discovered at their hotel facility. The missive assured the staff that all protocols were being followed. The letter reads:

“We can confirm that 2 guests have tested positive for COVID-19. The case is in the hands of the medical authorities under whose advice we are following.”

“As a precaution, we have temporarily closed TIDES Restaurant in order to undertake a thorough deep cleaning process.”

This means that in the period leading to the August 26th confirmation, the guests were able to access the hotel facilities and interact with staff.

It is not certain whether the guests would have participated in any other activity while on the island.

NEMO notes that “extensive testing of all possible contacts has not revealed any other positive cases or exposure to SARS-Cov-2.”
