There are other instances going on, according to the police commissioner, which they are managing.

In the meantime, the Turks and Caicos Islands Hospital said in a media statement Sunday night that a series of circumstances led to the activation of the Emergency Mode status at The Cheshire Hall Medical Center.

It advised members of the community to only access the Cheshire Hall Medical Centre in the event of an extreme emergency and stated that the safety of the staff, patients, and their families is their top priority.

It concluded by stating that security and the police are still protecting the personnel and patients at this moment.
