The fourth traveler arrived from the USA on December 18,  2020 with a negative PCR result and tested positive for COVID-19 on entry  screening. All of these travelers were in mandatory quarantine at the time of receipt  of these results and will be isolated until cleared by two negative tests. Contact  tracing and testing have commenced.”
