GEORGE NEWS - The member of Fancourt Estate who tested positive for Covid-19 two weeks ago, recovered quickly.
This is according to estate manager Meredy Gibbs. "The member was asymptomatic. We isolated everyone who had been in contact with the member and fortunately everyone is well."
Gibbs announced in a statement on 19 March that the member had tested positive after participating in the annual club championships. The member is not a permanent resident at Fancourt.
The German guest of the Oubaai Hotel, who on 20 March received positive results after he had booked into the hotel a few days earlier, was moved to a private residence where he is continuing his isolation period. He had been in isolation in his hotel room. "The health department assisted with his move. He is well and will be in the country for quite some time," said Hotel Manager Brian Ng-Yuk-Shing.
According to Ng-Yuk-Shing, three staff members who were also isolated in rooms in the hotel after they had been in contact with the guest, have all been taken home per ambulance and are all fine.
