To the residents of the North Andros and the Berry Islands constituencies, please note that I am
aware of the present outbreak of COVID-19 in the communities.
I have spoken to the Minister of Health and Wellness, the Hon. Michael Darville, who is
currently organizing a team of health professionals and enforcement officers to be sent to the
Islands. I have the most confidence in our medical professionals who will ensure that public
health protocols inclusive of contact tracing, isolation and quarantine of individuals where
necessary to mitigate the spread of this deadly virus are implemented.
Until the health professionals have this matter under control, I strongly encourage all residents to
follow the safety protocols issued by the Ministry of Health. These protocols should include
washing your hands, wearing a mask, continuing to social distance and prevention of all large
Finally, please rest assured that as information becomes available to me, I will keep you abreast
of the same.
I also would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere condolences to the families of the
individuals who passed due to the medical complications associated with COVID-19.
My prayers are with all who have been impacted as a direct result of COVID-19.
I look forward to seeing you soon and to continuing to address the residents of North Andros &
The Berry Islands.
