Cabinet Notes: The Minister of Information and Technology informed that 300 additional tracking bracelets have arrived Antigua and are to be deployed for use to encourage those arriving passengers in self-isolation or in quarantine to be traceable to the location specified.
A total of 500 bracelets are therefore deployable immediately.
Already, two persons who were wearing the bracelets decided to go shopping and the bracelets signaled to the Command Center that the persons had gone beyond the borders of the quarantine center.
Those persons were identified, and punitive action will likely be taken by a Magistrate for having disobeyed the terms of the quarantine.
More of these bracelets will be deployed to discourage mixing and the possible spread of the infectious virus.
