On Nov. 13, hundreds of people crowded around a stage at the Festival Village Grounds to watch performances during a show called the Fish Fete.

Many of them weren’t wearing masks or social distancing.

This week government reported that Fish Fete attendees has tested positive for Covid-19, as had attendees at the Phi Theta Kappa Honour Society Induction Ceremony two days later at the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College.

“The government is asking all persons that attended the Fish Fete and the Phi Theta Kappa ceremony to monitor

themselves for any symptoms for the next seven days,” according to a Monday notice from the Ministry of Health and Social Development.

Anyone experiencing symptoms was urged to self-isolate and call the Public Health Unit to schedule a test.

The Monday notice didn’t say how many of the event attendees had tested positive.

On Tuesday evening, however, government released an update to its Covid-19 dashboard, which stated that there were 12 active cases in the territory.

The number was down from 21 at the time of the previous update on Nov. 15.

The dashboard didn’t specify where the cases were located.

It did say, though, that 18,194 people in the territory have been fully vaccinated.
