Public Health can confirm that two individuals in Cayman Brac have tested positive for the viral disease COVID-19.
A symptomatic walk-in patient at Faith Hospital was found to be positive after being tested yesterday. A primary contact of the patient who had come to the hospital with her also tested positive. A second primary contact is being tested this afternoon.
Public Health has already begun contact tracing for the incident, which healthcare officials stress is in no way connected to the Little Cayman case reported yesterday.
As part of the contact tracing process 62 individuals attended a routine walk-in COVID-19 screening clinic at Faith Hospital. Results are currently pending.
