Watson: We Want To Move Past PM Quarantine Issue

Published

on

Government is looking to move past the controversy surrounding the prime minister’s admission that he broke quarantine last month. Press Secretary in the Office of the Prime Minister Clint Watson today addressed it for what he called the last time.

 



Watson, looking to put the ordeal behind them, says the people want the government to be able to move on past it. 

Questions over which account of the prime minister breaking quarantine last month mounted after Health Minister Dr. Michael Darville on Tuesday said Davis was not yet in quarantine when he went to pay for Christmas gifts at a local jewelry store on December 23rd. 

However, that statement contradicted comments made by the PM himself during a memorial service when he said he left quarantine to make the purchase.

The rules at the time required people exposed to the virus to quarantine for 14 days. 

According to health rules passed by the Davis administration in 2021, breaking quarantine is an offense that carries a fine of $500.

Opposition Leader Michael Pintard has said Davis needs to publicly address the quarantine breach. Former Prime Minister Hubert Minnis has called on Davis to pay the fine.

When asked about calls for him to pay a fine or resign yesterday, Davis offered no comment.

OPM has maintained that Davis did not violate any law.
