The Health Services Sub-committee has announced the resumption of review of applications for fully vaccinated events.
“All private citizens, organisations, promoters, DJs and event coordinators are asked to take note,” the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) said.
The sub-committee reminded the public that the mass gathering protocols for indoor and outdoor gatherings (maximum of 10 persons indoors, 20 persons outdoors and 1/3 of the place of worship’s capacity) are still in effect.
“These gatherings include, but are not limited to clubs, bars, restaurants, wedding, funerals, conference rooms, churches and private gatherings,” a statement said.
Those wishing to exceed the required capacity are asked to note the revised protocol for fully vaccinated events:
Option 1: Fully vaccinated (1st & 2nd doses or a single dose) and appropriately boosted (5-6 months) for all eligible patrons, vendors, health and security personnel;
Option 2: Fully vaccinated (1st & 2nd doses) and a negative antigen test taken no more than 24 hours prior to the event at an approved testing site or by a MOHWE approved testing team for those who are not appropriately boosted. For all eligible patrons, vendors, and health and security personnel.
The Health Services Sub-committee will continue to be guided by the ever-evolving science as we work together with the public to maintain the health and wellbeing of all of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
