Another returning national arrived from Canada on December 14 with a negative PCR result, tested negative on arrival then positive on day 5 testing.
“All of these travelers were in mandatory quarantine at the time of receipt of these results and will be isolated until cleared by two negative tests. Contact tracing and testing have commenced,” the release said.
