Quarantined Vanuatu-stranded nationals allowed back into society

A number of persons serving the mandatory quarantine period at various Institutional Quarantine Facilities have been released. Out of a total of 158 occupants 24 were released 16th June.

Those released are Solomon Island nationals who came in from Vanuatu during the first two repatriation flights into the country in May. They are mostly our nationals stranded in Vanuatu.

“The 24 occupants have successfully passed and met all requirements placed upon all incoming persons that required them to serve the 14 days quarantine period.

“Their release mean they have proven themselves to be free from any medical condition that might relate to COVID-19.
