PM tested negative for COVID-19, in quarantine until next Monday

It came to my attention, last night, that on Monday 10th, I was exposed to someone who later tested positive for Covid-19.

I have been tested and the results are negative.

Out of an abundance of caution I have been advised to remain in quarantine at home until next Monday when the full fourteen day period would have expired.

Given the circumstances under which we all now live I once again take this opportunity to appeal to ALL citizens to each do their part to help fight this virus by strictly following the health instructions of regular attentive hand washing and sanitization, physical distancing and no congregation in groups above five persons and additionally most importantly wear a mask once outside the home or in an enclosed space which is being shared at close quarters.

With the discipline that is expected of us together we can fight and beat the uncontrolled expansion of this virus.
