The National Emergency Management Organisation says that its recommendation for the reinstatement of the restrictions on gatherings in St. Vincent and the Grenadines will be considered if the COVID-19 case positivity (percentage of tests which are positive) rises is higher than 5% over a two-week period.

Alternatively, the restrictions would be recommended if there are10 or more new COVID-19 cases “without possible connection to each other are reported in a day”.

NEMO is strongly advising the public to “continue practicing the proven public health measures of hand sanitising, social distancing and being vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus in order to decrease the risk of a new surge in cases”.

It said protocols for vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers to SVG remain unchanged.

“Vaccinated travelers 5 years and older must therefore arrive with a negative rapid antigen test no more than 24 hours old or a negative RT-PCR test no more than 72 hours old.

“Unvaccinated travelers 5 years and older must arrive with a negative RT-PCR test no more than 72 hours old and paid reservations for quarantine in an SVGTA/MOHWE approved hotel.

“The Health Services Sub-committee will continue to be guided by the ever-evolving science as we work together to maintain the health and wellbeing of all of St. Vincent and the Grenadines,” NEMO said.

  1. So why leave out the wearing of face mask from the protocol.? Why take vaccine and I never heard or read of any possible adverse effects including long term complications from any of you? You never educated the citizens . We are still awaiting to hear the VAERS .
