The Nawaka tramline settlement in Nadi has been identified as an area of concern.
This has been confirmed by Permanent Secretary for Health Doctor James Fong to FBC News today.
Dr Fong says the settlement will also be a screening zone.
The Ministry of Health has also set up screening and isolation zones in the Nadi containment area.
These areas include Korociri Settlement, Nawajikuma Settlement and Qina Road Settlement.
It adds that this is being done to check for COVID-like symptoms and travel histories that may have put fellow residents in the path of Fijians living with COVID.
Mobile screening teams visited the areas today to screen and swab residents and this will continue over the next few days.
The Ministry is calling on residents in these areas to stay home and avoid any close contact with people from other households.
Those who experience COVID-like symptoms are encouraged to call 158 immediately.
