The Fiji Mission (FM) administration has put the FM headquarters compound in Suva under lockdown until June 10 after a case of COVID-19 was detected on June 5.

The compound where the Mission office is based also accommodates staff homes, with around 50 residents on site.

General secretary Dr Ronald Stone said a female resident returned a positive test on Saturday, June 5, but had already been moved from her home on Thursday, June 3, to quarantine. Her family is also quarantining for 14 days.

“She is the wife of one of the FM staff, and she works at the Ministry of Health,” said Dr Stone.

All residents have been tested on Tuesday and advised to stay inside their homes while the Fiji government health team conducts more tests to determine a possible community transmission.
