By Aaron Humes: No sooner than reports of his leaving office surfaced, the National Oversight Committee sought to quash it.
Moments ago, the National Oversight Committee (NOC) sent out a release saying that “Dr. Marvin Manzanero, Director of Health Services, has not tendered his resignation. The information currently being circulated by various news outlets is false.”
The amended Quarantine Regulations make it an offense for the DHS to not do as directed and submit names and addresses of persons found to be positive for COVID-19 and in self-isolation and mandatory quarantine for purposes of national security.
The Director has made a point of not naming or confirming the names of these people due to doctor-patient confidentiality.
The NOC says it “did have a discussion with Dr. Manzanero regarding the most recent statutory instrument. It was agreed to recommend to Cabinet an alternative way of dealing with the issue of COVID-19 positive persons who break quarantine and the law.”
The Statutory Instrument signed by Dr. Manzanero’s boss Pablo Marin went into effect yesterday, Tuesday.
