    The Brooklyn Facility in Sangre Grande and Camp Balandra in Toco will no longer serve as parallel healthcare facilities for COVID-19.

    Both have been de-commissioned by the Health Ministry, following the recent introduction of home isolation for low risk patients, and the opening of a new parallel facility at the UTT campus in Valsayn.

    According to the Ministry, the cost for the use of the Brooklyn Facility was $511,005 over a six-month period.

    Camp Balandra meanwhile cost the State $320,000 over a six-and-a-half-month period.
