Six officials in the Prime Minister’s Office at Government House have tested positive for Covid-19 after random screening of its 700 staff. The six positive results came from the first batch of 350 staff whose saliva was screened with rapid test kits. The second batch will be tested on Monday.

The six whose results came back positive have been tested again via the swab method to confirm the infection, with the results due tomorrow (December 26).

Government House has now been closed to outsiders, while all documents delivered to the building are being sterilised in a UV cabinet.

The building will be sterilised in a deep-cleaning operation on Friday. Meanwhile the press pack at Government House have been warned they face rapid tests if the situation does not improve.
