  • Transmission of the Corona virus happens when the air -- along with saliva and mucus -- is forced out of your mouth and nose, when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

  • This air with saliva and mucus cannot transport itself for more than a meter. That is why we have to maintain our distance from others.

  • As long as a person does not have the CORONAVIRUS symptoms he or she is not contagious and does not need to be tested. Because: 1) Without sufficient virus in the body someone does not cough nor sneeze. 2) And without the cough or sneeze someone cannot spread the virus.

  • This is the criteria of WHO and CDC and the Aruba Department of Public Health will adhere.

  • As to the information published in case #3 COVID-19. All departments of Infectious Diseases adhered to all procedures as prescribed and the infected person is in preventive quarantine as of Friday 13 March 2020

  • As far as the closing of the consult/doctor’s office. This was on a voluntary basis and not on DVG’S advice. After having taken all proper actions DVG did not find it necessary to close the consult / doctor’s office.
