Dominica announces new protocols for entering the island in COVID-19 era


(Barbados Today) Dominica says new measures regarding travellers entering the island will go into effect on Wednesday even as the island recorded four new cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Health Minister Dr. Irvine McIntyre, appearing Sunday night on the weekly television programme hosted by Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, said a person who is fully vaccinated, will no longer be tested at the airport on arrival.

“What is being done, you will go through the normal usual stuff, you have to wear your mask and you must adhere to physical distancing etc, they will ask you a few questions…but you will have to go to your hotel which has to be a certified nature property or a government quarantine facility”.

McIntyre said on the second day at these facilities a PCR test will be done and the results given within a 24 hour period.

“So what it means a minimum of two days…so the days of five and six and seven days in quarantine are over for fully vaccinated travellers.. So there are no more five and six and seven days like we used to have before.
