Ensuring data privacy and confidentiality as we battle COVID-19, is of paramount importance to the Ministry of Health. We assure the public that we will continue to strongly protect each individuals’ COVID tests information as long as the protocols and guidelines for COVID cases are adhered to by the individuals. This publication of names comes after several attempts by health officials to convince the above-mentioned persons to comply with health authorities and COVID isolation protocols.

We remind the public that the country is facing an alarming upsurge in positive cases, coupled with the growing false sense of security and laxity. We urge each individual to remain vigilant and ensure that social distancing measures are observed at all times as much as possible. It is imperative to remember that in fighting disease threats, only a deep commitment to collective responsibility can yield a decisive difference.

We advise the general public to call 1025 should they know the whereabouts of any individual on this list, as in collaboration with The Ministry of Justice, charges would be proffered against those apprehended. Anyone mentioned in this missive should call 1025 and follow subsequent instructions in order to avoid conviction.

Ministry of Health.
