I must also inform that during the early part of this afternoon I was informed by the Health Officials for the need to have me tested as a result of me being in close contact with someone who had recently tested positive for Covid-19. As a result, late this afternoon, 24 December, 2021, I was tested for COVID-19 and the results returned as positive.
