2 new COVID-19 cases (imported) detected in Cayman Islands

19 August, The Chief Medical Officer, Dr John Lee, reports 183 COVID-19 tests have been carried out since this was last reported on Tuesday, 18 August. Two were positive.

Two separate travellers arriving in Cayman on different flights have tested positive as part of routine screening on completion of the mandatory isolation period. They will remain in isolation with their travelling parties until they have completed the necessary additional period of isolation.

These two positive cases will change the World Health Organization designation of the Cayman Islands from “No cases” to “Sporadic cases”, the latter which is defined as “Countries/ territories/areas with one or more cases, imported or locally detected”.

The total number of people in isolation, either at a government facility or in their homes as required by the Medical Officer of Health, is currently 95.
