A jazz icon and popular comedienne were among hundreds of people screened by the North Central Regional Health Authority as part of its "Ready for the Road" initiative.

Chief Executive Officer Davlin Thomas told CNC3 that people may be exercising for Carnival but not necessarily focusing on their health.

He says this became evident when persons coming in for screening prior to Carnival had to be rushed to hospital.
