What does it take for the students (that returned from Jamaica), to be released from quarantine?
Fifty-three (53) of the Federation’s students studying in Jamaica, who had difficulty getting back to St. Kitts and Nevis due to border closing as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, were repatriated on Thursday, April 30th, 2020.
The students were brought back to the Federation on a chartered flight organized by the Ministries of Education and Foreign Affairs and were subject to quarantine for at least 14 days.
21 of the 53 students, who returned from Jamaica, are from Nevis.
Chief Medical Officer (CMO), Dr. Hazel Laws, gave an insight about the factors to consider in releasing the students.
