Isolators warned they must get official PCR exit test

Health Minister Sabrina Turner at the press briefing

(CNS): Health Minister Sabrina Turner said at Thursday’s press briefing that people who have tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus who leave isolation before getting an official PCR exit test, regardless of how long they have been in quarantine, will be prosecuted. Those who have left isolation without getting the formal test are being selfish, Turner said.

The minister said those in quarantine are not free to leave home until they have received an official negative result, and that people must follow the procedures; they cannot self-release, as that is a violation of the rules.

There have been indications that some people, frustrated by the system, had taken a lateral flow test and then gone about their business and had failed to turn up for the official exit test.

Turner said that government has a list of all those in quarantine as a result of being positive and would come after people who flout the regulations and put the community at risk. She said there could still be deadly consequences because of the rapid spread of the virus.

“We are aware that persons took themselves out of isolation… without reporting to the exit PCR testing site,” she said. “Let me warn everyone who has done this that you are in violation of the Public Health Law and you may still be positive, carrying a high viral load, and you are putting the public and yourself at great risk and you are just outright selfish.”

The minister continued, “I am warning you, if you don’t show up by tomorrow, you will be reported to the police for prosecution.”

Turner claimed that government was being flexible in decisions but public safety was at the heart of the procedures.

“Public Health is behind, yes I know, and many of you are critical of them,” she said, before referring to the department as “my Public Health”, who she said were working very hard, despite the criticisms.

As she concluded her comments, Turner said she was concerned that people were developing an attitude towards the pandemic of not caring and were putting the entire community at risk.

Addressing employers who not paying staff members who are sick, even warning them not to report their status to Public Health and threatening to fire them if they do so, the minister warned them that reporting a positive test is mandatory and not an option. “Being COVID-positive makes you a public health risk,” she said. “We must remain committed to following the regulations.”

Turner also revealed that on Cayman Brac, enforcement of social distancing and other protocols would be stepped up and there would be more access to vaccines, given the increase in transmission on that island, where a considerable number of elderly and vulnerable people live.

After the press conference and numerous requests over the last week, Public Health officials released more up-to-date figures on the huge number of positive COVID-19 cases reported this week. There were 850 new positive cases on Monday and Tuesday, including 14 cases on the Sister Islands.

With an estimated 4,000 people in isolation and a great many people needing a PCR test to confirm a positive LFT or for exit testing, Public Health is stretched to its limits.

Government has now expanded the testing programme and has moved the daily walk-in clinic from the South Sound Community Centre to a drive-through service at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex parking lot, starting Friday, 21 January. The new drive-through clinic will be for exit testing and confirmation PCR following positive lateral flow tests.

“We are aware of the heavy traffic of persons requiring PCR tests at the South Sound Community Centre and have been working on alleviating this issue by identifying a more suitable location,” said Dr Medical Officer of Health Samuel Williams-Rodriguez.

“After the successful launch of the new drive-through clinic at Truman Bodden Sports Complex parking lot earlier this week, we have determined that this site meets the needs of this daily testing clinic and allows for better crowd control, a more streamlined process for patients as they will be tested from the comfort of their vehicle.”

Public Health directed PCR testing clinics are as follows:

Isolation/Quarantine Exit PCR Testing Centres – Open Daily

  • Truman Bodden Sports Complex (parking lot drive-thru) – 7am – 10am
  • Ed Bush Sports Complex – 10am – 12pm
  • Bodden Town Civic Centre – 10am – 12pm

Positive LFT Confirmation PCR Testing Centres – Open Daily

  • Truman Bodden Sports Complex (parking lot drive-thru) – 7am – 10am
  • Ed Bush Sports Complex – 1 – 2pm
  • Bodden Town Civic Centre – 1 – 2pm

People who test positive with a LFT must isolate immediately, report the result here and attend the next available designated HSA clinic for your PCR test. This confirmation PCR test is a Public Health requirement. 

Results will state “Not valid for travel”. These confirmation tests are not conducted at the Cayman Islands Hospital, COVID clinic, or any private institution. Individuals who require PCR or certified LFT for outbound travel or other optional screening should attend the clinic at 131 Centre MacLendon Drive.

Faith Hospital in Cayman Brac will provide exit testing for certified LFTs at the Aston Rutty Centre Medical Wing on Friday, 21 January, from 9am – 3pm for those eligible to exit quarantine based on the new changes to government regulations.

Certified LFTs are CI$25 and people being tested can pay by cash, credit or debit card. Test results will be availbale in approximately 1 hour.

People in Little Cayman can contact the Little Cayman Clinic at 948-0072 to schedule an appointment.

People attending the drive-through must bring their photo ID along with the QR code that will be provided in the email as proof of payment. 

Anyone paying cash can visit the clinic at 131 MacLendon Drive location between 7:30am and 12pm, as the drive-through location is for pre-paid customers only.

The minimum age for the certified LFT exit testing is five years; children under five are not required to be tested.

    PACT GOV: “Follow the science”
    SCIENCE: (WHO) The updated criteria reflect recent findings that patients whose symptoms have resolved may still test positive for the COVID-19 virus (SARS-CoV-2) by RT-PCR for many weeks. Despite this positive test result, these patients are not likely to be infectious and therefore are unlikely to be able to transmit the virus to another person.

    The whole point of any covid restrictions is to prevent the hospital being too full.

    So surely the fairest thing is end all tests and restrictions for the vaccinated (boosted) only?

    How is anything else fair?

      Vaccinated can catch and spread the disease as well, so exempting them makes no sense. the real question is whether the extent of these restrictions is proportionate to the impact of the disease now it has mutated.

    This is stupid now. Let’s look at the facts:

    – vaccines available for a year
    – everyone who wants to be is now boosted
    – we should not prioritise protecting unvaxed – they have made their choice and they are the only ones who will die from omicron. Their fault.
    – for the boosted pretty much every omicron case is no symptoms and harmless

    So end the exit pcr tests, end the traveler arrival lft day 2, 5 etc. as it’s obvious anyone positive on last one is catching it here not elsewhere. Just leave it on the people to be trusted to isolate if unvaccinated and positive.

    The UK have ended work from home guidance, masks etc. and no where else has these stupid exit pcr tests. The government are acting disgracefully now – imposing March 2020 pre vaccine style rules when for most Covid is no longer a concern.

    They are losing control of the situation and have no idea about what to do next. The USA and UK (among many others) have recently relaxed their overall isolation protocols and realise they need to be pragmatic. The civil service here believe they can continue to exert a level of control which is not realistic. They still insist of performing entry PCR tests (why??) and exit PCR tests. Allow people to register as positive and they take a certified LFT after 7 days. If they are negative let them go about their business. Threatening people like this 2 years into the pandemic when we have widespread community transmission shows how deluded they have become.

    • Anonymous says:

      Well said. We must be days away from the first legal challenge. The traveler arrival tests alone should be abolished, let alone the stupid pcr exit tests. Just impose restrictions on the unvaccinated. For the boosted with omicron the pandemic is no longer an issue.

        @11.48am. Please stop trying to twist this to suit your agenda. This isn’t about Johnson or anything else apart from generally what governments are doing around isolation criteria.
        It is now well recognized that trying to enforce an unreasonable isolation period with unreasonable conditions is not viable in many countries. There is a recognition that while some restrictions early on were accepted by the general public, attitudes have changed in the past 6 months or so. This is not only normal but healthy when so many people have been vaccinated in different states and countries. The risks are much lower than they were a year ago due to the high vaccination rates. Cayman is part of this change but the civil service still believes it can dictate in the same way it used to. This is simply not going to work.

    The motivations behind “do this and do that” messaging has always been muddled to those primed with and overconfident in bad info. Most of what we do right now is and should be for others, not ourselves, and we don’t have the discretion to cancel unpleasant or inconvenient aspects simply because we feel we might be well prepared. We wear a mask, sanitize, distance and LFT as courtesies to others. We vaccinate and boost ourselves to improve our own survival chances, while collectively reducing burden on hospitals. Those recovering from COVID should be wearing a N95 for the entire week following recovery, per NYT today. Not for you, for others. If these were policies, people might eventually understand what the task is, and for whom, and vaccinated could be released from quarantine with an LFT on the 5th or 6th day. More confusing still that PACT seem to believe discredited herd immunity is possible and aren’t doing any wider community testing while going defcon 5 on honest that had reported their positives and been rewarded with lousy support. So far, Sabrina hasn’t been the right person to communicate this, and demonizing the people she has let down isn’t going to get her there.

    Considering that you can test positive with a PCR test for up to 90 days….personally I will not be reporting a positive LFT test. I am triple vaxxed, I wear a mask, I sanitize before going into a store, I social distance and avoid large crowds.

    If I test positive on a LFT test, I will isolate for the required time and then go about my business.

    I followed all the lockdown rules in 2020, I took the vaccine so that life could return to some kind of normalcy, and now you’re going to threaten me with police action if I don’t follow your rules that not only do they not make sense, but they violate my constitutional rights and have no scientific basis. I think non mon ami.

    Also, why can’t you go to any hospital that offers PCR testing for an existing test? You have admitted that Public Health can’t cope with the volume.

    What are the options for people without a car to get an existing test?

    What are the options for parents that don’t have childcare?

    What are the options for the elderly and sick, you want them to stand in line during the hottest hours of the day?

    And you’re going to throw out threats? Get over yourself, do your job, follow the science and make it easier for people to get tested and get out of quarantine, not harder.

    The threat of prosecution is just that, a threat. I’d wager that no one will be prosecuted.

    Making all of these crazy rules to protect the unvaccinated is dumb. If you choose not to be vaccinated you are the one risking your life and the people who are vaccinated should not have to be constrained because of a personal decision that you have made.

      These pedantic rules are supposed to prevent the uncontrolled community spread we already have. There is no longer a sterile community bubble, nor is there a proactive LFT testing effort to screen for virus, therefore over 5% of population are already in quarantine from rampant community transmission! It’s like a bouncer sniffing someone’s lapel for smoke before allowing them into the cigar lounge. Pointless. Do one or the other.

    And the defence to any prosecution should be self-defence: No-one should be forced to go to the dangerous South Sound Covid camp to get tested – high risk of serious traffic accident, and the overcrowding, lack of facilities and chaotic lack of organisation means it is extremely risky.

    And public health is taking way way too long to process results – keeping people locked up while PH get their sorry disorganised asses into gear is unlawful.

    So RCIPS, come at it if you want to. Come on, have a go if you think you are hard enough. And we will sue you and CIG into the ground.

    If they implement ridiculous, unnecessary stupid rules and lock up non-syphomatic boosted people for 10 days because of a positive test, then they shoulde xpect people to break the draconian rules. No other country is doing this. The whole point of the vaccines was to give us freedom, not lock us down to protect the selfish unvaccinated idiots. The rules should be to help vaccinated, not unvaccinated.

      As the original poster I hope the government are reading tis. Overwhelmingly it seems the island think the rules are a joke. In any other country they would not have these restrictions by now.

    Ridiculous. Just allow LFT’s. With Omicron this covid is over as vaccinated with a booster means you will be fine. Stop locking people down to protect the selfish unvaxed. If you die unvaxed it is your own fault, no one elses. Why should I isolate until negative PCR if positive on an LFT just to save selfish unvaccinated people who didn’t do their responsible duty?.

      Agree. Complete bullshit. Nobody gets prosecuted for any “infraction”. Pure smoke.

        The lack of prosecution in general is exactly why we are going into an EU blacklist again. We are corrupt. #Leggewasright

            Particularly given the overt unfettered conduct of some of the developers and their civil servant and political enablers. Well done “robust” law enforcers. Your inaction is destroying us.

    I notice she loves to use that word SELFISH alot. Hmmmm … however, some people’s ethics are distorted. They equate being selfish for refusing to be vaccinated ! Yep … true!

    They are vocal on all whatsapp groups, facebook communities and blog posts. Criticizing the government’s laws, quarantine is too long, kids should be exempt from travel testing, the lines are crazy, there shouldn’t be a need for an exit PCR. They use their own judgment, they think for themselves, they will even do some research and upload supporting articles to their posts. They are educated, well rounded, and of course, know better than the government what is good for the people.

    Their child is sick, 17 kids in a 20 children class got it slowly over a week while doing daily testing. None of the kids is sent to school with a mask, their parents claim “medical exemptions from wearing a mask”.Their kids are sick, they live in big houses on the water but will not separate the healthy siblings from the sick child. They send their “healthy” children to school after a negative morning LFT test, and after they gave their sick sibling a big kiss in the morning. And of course, without wearing a mask to school. It’s the law. They are not breaking it. This is exactly what the law allows you to do. They don’t question it. They don’t upload any posts saying how this law makes no sense, look, a whole class that was negative every morning is sick now. Research shows we are contagious for days before the positive LFT test, and definitely many days after. Masks protect us from spreading the virus. Where are all those posts? Where are the CDC articles showing this makes no sense?And the first sibling becomes positive, and then the second, and the third, and another class is out.

    Asking a single mom with a positive LFT to leave her 2 young sick kids in the car when she takes a PCR is incredibly insensitive, so people break the law, and don’t report positive tests. But they will never break the law, and even consider keeping a sibling at home, or the worst of all, send them to school with a mask. It’s the law.

      Prove that masks prevent the spread of the virus. You can’t.

        It can definitely help slow the spread. I just can’t grasp why people are SO OPPOSED to masks mind blowing…

        The best you can do is offer evidence and testimony. So sit quietly and let the adults handle this.

    Oh give it a rest. Going to be prosecuted? No one takes any notice of the laws here because they are not enforced. This attitude of never punishing anyone has ruined the country, because everyone now knows they can break the law and nothing will be done about it.

    Boris for Premier!

      In your dreams. A legendary capable politician who gave us our vaccines before most countries in the world, has opened up the UK safely earlier than anywhere else in Europe and delivered consistently on COVID? If only we could have that level of intellect amongst these unqualified idiots running Cayman.

    When the exit tests are run with incompetence it is no wonder people are self testing – Sabrina should be more worried about the govt being sued for human rights violations.

    Yet another reason why only an idiot would report a positive LFT in the first place. Not today BoBo.

    Heather needs to realize that she does not have the power. The people do. What is she going to do, have everyone arrested and given criminal charges? Her puffed up chest and hard word fell so flat. The people have suffered enough and indications are we are not following the UK or science on this. She will be a one term MP.

    CNS: I believe the commenter meant Sabrina and not Heather.

      But Sabrina along with the Premier thinks they are FOLLOWING THE SCIENCE.

        And it takes up to 90 days for the body to clear the dead virus that the PCR test. This is why so many fully quarantined and previously positive COVIDs are having to continue an extra long isolation.

        • Anonymous says:

          Only in Cayman do you do a PCR test to exit isolation after positive.
          Waste of money.
          Waste of resources (manpower/testers & people running testing equipment/tabulating results)
          Cause of mental health issues, current & future
          Stop this madness.
          Release after negative LFT / even if you want your make it certified.

      • Anonymous says:

        Not the science followed elsewhere in the world. STOP the exit PCR. Maybe then you will be able to get actual confirmation of LFT positive results quicker & update the data (statistics) in a timely manner.

      • Anon says:

        It is amazing Sabrina can come across so condescending and hateful at the same time. At the very least it is counterproductive, besides the threats being not legal nor credible. Pls stop.
