Primary and secondary isolation for COVID-19 patients in Barbados are units which accommodate those who are very ill and need close monitoring and treatment, with primary isolation housing the most severely ill. Tertiary isolation houses patients who are only mildly ill or not showing illness.  

It is important to note that the number of persons in isolation is fluid and changes throughout the day as persons are admitted and discharged.
