As the government continues its mandate of testing everyone who visited or reside on the sister island of Jost van Dyke following a possible COVID-19 exposure, Premier and Minister of Finance, Hon Andrew A. Fahie (R1) said that he too, has been tested for the virus.
"I too recently visited our beautiful island of Jost van Dyke and have ensured that my family and I were tested and our results have shown that we have tested negative for COVID-19."
The Premier made the announcements last evening Friday, July 24, 2020, alongside Deputy Premier and Minister of Health and Social Development, Hon Carvin Malone (AL), in a COVID-19 update to the nation.
He said that it was important that as the head of the territory, whatever policy was mandated for one, must be adhered to by all.
The difference between a welfare state and a totalitarian state is a matter of time.
