Two of the active cases are returning residents and nine are tourists or non-residents.
“All persons were deemed non-symptomatic and are safe and secured in quarantine until they have completed the re-test protocols yielding negative results to be considered recovered,” Malone said.
Cabinet has also increased the fines for persons who breach COVID-19 protocols:
1. Fines for deliberate tamper and damage to geo-fencing (tracking) devices are up from $125 to $2,000.
2. Unauthorised visits to those under quarantine will pull a fine of $5,000 up from $500.
3. Failure to comply with a quarantine order will see offenders charged a fine between $5,000 and $10,000
4. Those who contravene the COVID-19 protocols and guidelines face a fine of $10,000 up from $1,000.
The fine increases come just days after it was revealed that a traveller who tested positive for COVID-19 upon arrival in the BVI, left the quarantine area without approval and put more than 16 persons at risk of contracting the virus.
