NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis and Deputy Prime Minister K Peter Turnquest have entered voluntary self-quarantine after their offices were exposed to COVID-19.

In a statement, the Cabinet Office said it has not been confirmed whether the pair were directly exposed.

The statement announced that the Cecil Wallace-Whitfield Centre, which houses the Office of the Prime Minister, the Ministry of Finance and their agencies, has been closed for cleaning and sanitization following exposure to the virus.

“The Ministry of Health’s Surveillance Unit has initiated contact tracing to determine the level of exposure to employees and visitors to the Cecil Wallace-Whitfield Centre,” the statement read.

“At this point there has been no confirmation that the Prime Minister or the Deputy Prime Minister have been exposed.

“Out of an abundance of caution, the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister will voluntarily enter into self-quarantine until further instructions from the Ministry of Health.”

It added: “Other employees of the Cecil Wallace-Whitfield Centre are encouraged to self-quarantine until further instructions are issued by the Ministry of Health.”

….and there I was thinking you guy’s we’re anti COVID-19. Not implying that you do have it but definitely not saying that you don’t. Even thought you guys we’re the living antidote. How to spell Hypocrites again? I mean if you can come down on a Country….your Country and beating in people’s head to wear a mask, locking people up, taking them to Court, charging them, threatening them. Yeah! Then that’s what you are. Now you’re saying self qurrentain. Lol! I can’t see why the Teacher is telling the students to do as I say but not as I do, what is good for me ain’t good for you. I hope that you guy’s stay negative during your qurrentain because we are all in this together. This virus holds only one of God’s principles…..”Don’t have favorites “. Be safe Humanity because we need each other like we need God.
