Permanent Secretary in the Health and Wellness Ministry, Dunstan Bryan, is seeking to allay fears that persons quarantined and those isolated are being held in a area in which they have close contact.

He explains that quarantine is for persons exposed to the disease and may have been infected, while isolation is for those who’ve tested positive for COVID-19.

And he says while both set of persons are being accommodated at the Bahia Principe hotel, they are in different sections and have no contact with each other.
