ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- The Leader of Government Business, Premier and Minister of Finance, Honourable Andrew A. Fahie (R1), has tested negative for COVID-19 and is out of self-isolation.

It was on April 1, 2021, that our newsroom had reported that Premier Fahie was on self-isolation after possibly being exposed to coronavirus.

The Premier notified the public on his Facebook page today, April 7, 2021, that he was back in office.

Negative COVID result

“Today, I continue to be thankful to GOD for His grace and mercy towards these Virgin Islands!  

My fellow Virgin Islanders, you may be aware that a number of persons within the community were advised to self-isolate due to possible exposure to someone who tested positive for the coronavirus. I was one of those persons. As such, I fully complied with the health advisory and followed the required protocols. Today, I am happy to report that I have been cleared from isolation as my COVID result came back negative. To God be the glory!”

Happy to be back in office

Honourable Fahie, who received his first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine on February 24, 2021, said he was truly happy to be back in Office and Cabinet working physically, and not remotely, for the people of the Virgin Islands.

“I will continue to do my part, making the best decisions in the best interest of our beautiful Virgin Islands.

“I also wish to remind us all to remain vigilant and to continue to observe all the COVID-19 protocols that are in place for the safety of our family, friends and the Virgin Islands. BVILOVE is each and every one of us doing our part.”

    ?????? It hasn't been 10 days. Only 4 days which I understood them to have put in writing. Something here is wrong! So everyone in the church is free as of today with their self quarantine? Most of them did not have the first shot.....Really?

      Funeral was 27th March
      Today is 7th April

      10 days has passed and testing is being conducted 6 - 8 April

      Many persons who attended the funeral did not isolate so hopefully they get tested and if positive conduct contact tracing

      I know vaccine is unpopular among the population,. and it's a personal choice but think of the country and the hard times,. Yes you may be doing well getting your full salary but my people all is not well, life is not just about us,,,, There is a popular song that says,,*Live for yourself you live in vein,. Live for others you live again* Take the shot just for your country,,, I did it for my country, no one was against the vaccine more than I,,,, when I think I realized life is not all about me,,,I too have pre existing health issue, but I put my faithin God Anything can kill us Gun shots, accidents, instant heart attack,. Today we here young and strong tomorrow we gone,. We have to move with faith trusting God knowing everything will be ok,,,In your decision as personal and as hard as it is, think of your country, this of others,,, Let's move forward together,,,, Thank you!

        I beg you stop using God’s name for your agenda.

        God asked us to test the spirits. Even the devil comes disguised as an angel of light.

        This vaccine is not our saviour stop acting like it is especially knowing the number of issues surrounding it.

        God first not country.

      @Good News:

      By your statement, I will take for granted that you do not pay attention to the Outside World. In case you miss it, several persons who have been fully vaccinated(got both shots) have contract the virus as well as pass it on to their families, friends, co-workers and others. A few healthcare facilities have temporarily close in the USA and in UK because the staff that took the vaccine contract the virus. In state of Washington a man is currently in ICU and he has the full vaccine. They are currently persons that had the virus before, took the vaccine and still got it a second time. A few weeks ago MSN had a story of a woman who contracted the virus three times and one of those was after the vaccine. They are other cases but just these for now. You can do your own research on this.

    All them man who took the vaccine will be super spreaders they would be killing other vaccinated people and they’ll blame us unvaccinated as the reason their dying but they unknowingly they’ve weaken their immune system with the shots. So get ready in the future to hear that narrative

    I must applaud the Hon Premier for setting an example and staying in isolation. It say much about him and his good leadership for the BVI

    Under the NDP they do as they wish and never obeyed their own laws and policies. They were above the people.

    We will never go back to Funny man, Marlon and NDP! Bam
