Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has been tested for COVID-19 and would be in self-quarantine. The result was negative.

This after it was revealed he had had contact with someone on election night who tested positive for the virus.

Dr Rowley made the revelation on his Facebook page earlier on Friday but noted the result returned negative.

“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,” he advised.

He also used the opportunity to appeal to citizens to adhere to the public health guidelines.

“With the discipline that is expected of us, together we can fight and beat the uncontrolled expansion of this virus,” he said.
