There are no active cases of the COVID-19 virus on Barbuda at this time, since those who were infected have recovered from the sometimes-deadly virus.
However, Nadia George, Chairman of the Health, Disaster and Welfare Committee of the Barbuda Council, says the work continues, as the authorities attempt to test as many residents as possible.
Among the recovered patients is a teacher who worked at both the Sir McChesney George Secondary and the Holy Trinity Schools, whose illness had resulted in the closure of both plants.
Of the four confirmed cases on the sister-island, three were linked to the Peace Love and Happiness (PLH) construction project. Those persons are now receiving treatment in Antigua.
While Health officials are concerned that the worksite could have produced a cluster of infections, the developers continue to operate in spite of requests by the Council to cease work temporarily.
