Education Minister Fayval Williams, says she’s tested negative for COVID-19.

Concerns were raised about whether the Education Minister was exposed to the coronavirus, after a senior official at the ministry tested positive for the virus last week.

Our news centre reported on Friday that acting Chief Education Officer, Dr. Kasan Troupe, tested positive for COVID-19.

Minister Williams is also seeking to assure the nation that students and staff participating in the pilot phase of the resumption of face to face classes would not have been compromised.

She’s urging persons to exercise personal responsibility in the national effort to contain the coronavirus.

In the meantime, the Education Minister says so far there are positive reports about the pilot phase of the resumption of in-person classes.
