The University of the West Indies (UWI) St Augustine Campus is being prepared to quarantine over 200 returning students.

Speaking at a virtual media conference on Monday, Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh said the facility should be ready by the end of the week.

"We have built out and gone in to the University of the West Indies (UWI), and we are using their halls. The Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force (TTDF) is conducting some minor refurbishment and repairs."

On Saturday, National Security Minister Stuart Young said the students, who have been lodged at the University of the West Indies’ Cave Hill and Mona campuses, are expected home on June 13.

Young said they will be quarantined at the UWI St Augustine Campus and will have internet access to continue their studies.
