Prosecutor isolated after positive COVID rapid test, and two colleagues quarantined, as PCR result is pending
There is a COVID-19 infection in the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and that person has been placed in isolation.
Sources say the prosecutor, who is fully vaccinated, is exhibiting mild symptoms of the disease, including a cold, but otherwise is doing well.
Reports say the positive infection was picked up through a Rapid Antigen Test, and Ministry of Health officials are expected to verify this result through PCR testing.
According to a source, two other members of staff who had direct contact with the prosecutor have been placed in quarantine as a precaution. Both are also fully vaccinated.
The two employees have already undergone testing to determine whether they have contracted the virus and are awaiting the results of PCR testing.
The source says that other members of staff are out to work, including the DPP, and the infection has not impacted the effective functioning of the office.
