Trinidad and Tobago’s Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley on Friday said he had gone into voluntary quarantine after he had been exposed to a person suffering from COVID-19 during the country’s August 10th general elections.
In a message posted on his Facebook page Rowley said that it had come to his attention on Thursday night that on the night of the election “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,” Rowley wrote.
He said most importantly, persons must wear a mask once outside the home or in an enclosed space which is being shared at close quarters.
