More than a month ago, Health Minister Carvin Malone had issued a call for local hoteliers to consider leasing their properties to government for the venture. That call has now been extended to the residential community.
This is according to a Friday, May 22 media bulletin titled ‘BVI Property Owners Invited To Accommodate Returning Nationals’.
It said: “Persons who wish to have their homes or other properties inspected for the purpose of accommodating persons who are expected to return home as part of their 14-day mandatory quarantine requirement are invited to call the Government’s Customer Service Care Centre at (284) 494-3701 and provide details of the property.”
“Persons are to call Monday to Friday between the hours of 8 am to 5 pm and they can also email email@example.com,” it further said.
It is not clear how many properties government currently has available to use as state quarantine facilities.
