Earlier this week, people on the Island of Gau were been told by health authorities to lock down their villages for the next 14-days.

This is after a 15 crew member of a South Island Shipping Services vessel tested positive for COVID-19.

The boat Liahona carried cargo to Gau, Batiki, and Nairai last week.

All 15 crew members of the vessel are currently isolating in the boat berthed at Narain Jetty in Suva.
