This is according to the Ministry for Health and Social Development, who said the changes to the home quarantine process will be effective today, June 24, 2021.
“Emailing the home quarantine checklist is no longer required,” Chief Environmental Health Officer Mr E. Lionel Michael said, adding that the change will make it easier for residents and citizens to home quarantine.
Mr Michael, according to a press release from Government Information Services (GIS) on June 23, 2021, the checklist is now available via a web-form which can be found at www.bvimonitor.info/homequarantine or on the BVI Gateway Portal’s home page (bvigateway.bviaa.com).
