ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Deputy Premier and Minister for Education, Culture, Youth Affairs, Fisheries and Agriculture Dr the Honourable Natalio D. Wheatley (R7) has said introducing COVID-19 testing at public schools is not to be abusive or to trample on children’s rights, but to protect everyone in the educational system.

Since news broke of the Ministry of Education’s intention to conduct rapid antigen testing to usher in face to face instruction, sworn enemy of the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) government Rosemary Cindy Rosan-Jones took to social media to threaten the government with a lawsuit.

“See! I was good, chilling and all, and you guys just want to take me off my break abruptly with this BS. Just to be clear, my children are NOT being subjected to this and they will return to school. I will find the time and energy to file a lawsuit on the Ministry of Education and also on the Minister himself and anyone who tries to trample on my children’s rights. I am very serious. We have a bunch of tourists running around here untested, driving our numbers through the roof, and you want to harass my children? Not a chance in hell. Get y’all selves together,” Rosan-Jones wrote on her Facebook page today, January 6 2021.

She said the VIP Administration has been reckless and irresponsible and they should “Get it together.”

“If you’re not testing the cruise passengers on arrival, you’re not testing my children. I will upset the whole apple cart.

 PERIODT!!! Extremely annoyed,” Rosan-Jones, who has threatened to have the HoA under the VIP administration dissolved.

Minister’s reasoning 

Honourable Wheatley explained that because of the high COVID-19 numbers in the Virgin Islands and the challenges that online learning poses, the Ministry of Education is seeking ways to return students to the classroom in a safe manner.

He said in speaking with the Health authorities, the testing of students was discussed.

“We discussed the possibilities of introducing a testing regime that will allow us to verify the COVID status of the children at the school, and this is done in an effort to protect persons. Now, this may seem like a strange concept here in the Virgin Islands but many places in the world have introduced testing into schools. It is not being done to be abusive to anyone, it is not being done to violate persons' rights, it is being done in an effort to keep persons safe,” he said.

Dr Wheatley said it is difficult to keep children away from each other and to follow the safety guidelines that have been put in place by the Government to curtail the spread of the virus.

The Education Minister said all of the logistics of the testing regime is being worked out.

Where in the world is there a working system especially as it relates to testing and vaccination. More they vaccine more the figures are climbing.

Stop talking about the rest of the world and start using basic common sense which is not to follow the rest of the world down a dead end. What about herd immunity!!! No one is talking about anymore?

Just another baby mudder with no real regard for your children safety or of their fellow classmates desire for quality education in preparation for a future of self reliance.
    My children, each of whom are in elite schools 2nd and 4th grade in the US to the tune of $40,000 each are required to be vaccinated. Difference is, we the parents pay their private pediatricians for that service and follow ups,in addition to paying taxes. Seems like those refusing to share in preseving community health are the ones whose hands are empty and are community handout dependent. Get sick,continue the cycle of po me Ah Want,gimmee,gimmee.

        How the heck could testing children for COVID be a violation of rights..My children are also in private school off island...Parents conduct a saliva test before the child leave for school and messages the result.If test was reported negative ,when the child arrives at school child is again tested prior to entering the school. Parents also have the option of homeschooling with a qualified tutor at their own expense.
        When a foul mouthed woman of a certain age could have the listening ears of the parents in the VI and deemed to have class, it's another indication of the damage inflicted on quality of life and future of the VI by non selective immigration and underscores our decision to educate our children elsewhere .

    It appears the Government is not aware that without the parent's consent they cannot be subjecting any child to testing. In New York City there is a random testing program for testing school children, for example. Not all parents have consented and it is their right. The Government bodies/heads of that state recognise this. Whether mandatory or not this program has met some resistance since not every parent is agreeance with blinding giving consent to the government bodies/schools to test their child. There is also a concern of frequency doing testing and how health professions will be conducting the act (nasal swab/or otherwise). Some could care less if you are in pain. If we allow Government bodies/schools to perform this act without our consent and presence, what will be next? It may be too late then to state our disapproval because we already permitted them to take a step forward. The parents'/guardian's are the overseers of their children, not the few (government officials) making the decisions for the majority.

    See the proper protocol NYC has in place before uttering this non-sense. Consent is necessary from each parent.

    Why is there no concern about all the big gatherings local establishments are hosting? Also, many residents have been traveling to high risk countries/states. It is not just tourist transit we should be looking at. The numbers are up also because of the protocols we have in place for re-entry to.

    I am with you Cindly 100%. Not my child!

    So, as a teacher, I feel like you should stop talking. As an adult, I have deprived myself from enjoying 'Nature's Little Secret' so that I may be present to educate the children of these Virgin Islands, however, as a community, people like you have allowed your children to galavant on these streets and contract everything from STDs to Covid and then send them into the schools to affect both myself, my colleagues and their peers.
    So, NO! I do not agree with you on this. As a safety measure for me, the rest of the schools' staff and all the safe kids that follow the actual protocols and listen to their parents, your child and everyone else that needs to be in the school house needs to be tested. If you have a problem keep your kids at home. As a teacher we're okay with this. #OneLessPaperToMark

    You can’t spread what you don’t have. The only way to know who have and who don’t is testing. This isn’t about rights. If those same children wanted to travel and the laws of the country that they are visiting requires testing there would be no talks about lawsuits. These people are being selective with their craziness. The school does require permission from the parent before testing but if the school makes a policy that students that aren’t tested can’t come to school then that is the right of the school.

    Tis so we go about with complicity in remaining at the bottom of the human chain . About 2years of school and learning your children have missed and no way really to catch up. Now given the opportunity with a routine swab of the throat, it becomes an issue under pretense at the expense of innocents. Big mouth folks looking for a platform in an effort to be revelant . Pathetic glob of protoplasm with no conscience influencing the new and disapproved set of installed Islanders .
    When your children can only barely be accepted into a dodo college and be the last to be hired,if at all ,talk will be how tis racism. Fact, it's stupidity, jack ash Ness. Black folks are there own worse enemies.

    All these testing is just a waste of time and money, it is just to make their numbers look good and to support their baseless argument for vaccination and booster shots, you not feeling well you just stay home and take some paracetamol because is the same thing they going to give you when you go to the doctor, we just acting stupid and overreacting over the common flu.

    They should have been testing the super spreaders at the Christmas and Old Year’s parties. They are the ones that were allowed to create this mess. There is no point in the type of mass testing that is being suggested. The testing can not guarantee that Covid will not enter our schools.

    This requires a great deal of planning. If a child on a bus comes off the bus and mingles with friends prior to testing positive...what next? Would each child be tested prior to exiting their transport? What is the time frame for getting all students (eg. ESHS) tested before class begins at example 8:00?

    I had Covid 19 over the Christmas period and I am grateful to be alive. My symptoms included violent headache, dry retching, diahorrea, high fever, chills and shortage of breath and tiredness. I couldn't get out of bed for 4 days nor eat food. Just kept drinking water which kept coming back up. I was taking Tylenol every 3 hours for 3 days I was in so much pain. But due to the Astra Zeneca vaccine and the Pfizer booster I survived. This woman obviously has not Covid 19 otherwise she would be advocating the vaccine for all including teenagers. Scoring points for political gain does NOT save lives, vaccines do.

    It sounds like Ms Rosan can't afford to bring a lawsuit. Unless she's got something to sell.

    It's a bit sad to see this woman spiral out of control and downwards and downwards. I used to think she were proud; the harder they come the harder they fall.

    If i were the government, i would prosecute her if she withdraws children from school on this basis (unless she has adequate provision for homeschooling etc, which to be fair she might have time on her hands to do).
