by Karen Rollins May 4, 2022
St Lucia’s government has extended the island’s current COVID-19 protocols from 30 April until 3 June 2022.
In an address to the country on 29 April, the minister of health, wellness and elderly affairs, Moses Jn Baptiste, continued to ask citizens to play their part in minimising their risk of catching and passing on the virus.
He added that COVID-19 is still impacting the country with new cases being recorded every day, and therefore urged people to take the necessary prevention and control measures to protect themselves, their loved ones and “especially the most vulnerable.”
Below are some of the ongoing COVID-19 protocols:
- A person can host or attend a social event or recreational activity that consists of not more than 200 persons or his or her immediate family or fully vaccinated persons.
- A person with the approval of the Chief Medical Officer shall host or attend a social event or recreational activity that consists of more than 200 but not more than 300 fully vaccinated persons.
- A person shall not operate on a road, an omnibus that is loaded with more than three passengers in each row.
- A national, resident or non-national arriving in Saint Lucia who is fully vaccinated and produces a valid vaccination record may not be placed in quarantine or require a COVID-19 test.
- An unvaccinated person shall submit a valid PCR test taken within five days prior to arrival in Saint Lucia.
- All other protocols remain in effect for this period.
