Antigua and Grenada: Time to get COVID-19 vaccine – CARICOM Business
Frontline government workers in Antigua will be required to either get the COVID-19 vaccine or be tested for the virus every two weeks at their own expense. The vaccination policy was communicated in a memorandum sent to government departments.
According to one such memo “Effective immediately, all officers and auxiliary staff members are duly encouraged to become vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, or subject themselves to Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests every 14 days, at personal cost.”
Testing for all unvaccinated staff members will begin on August 9.
Meanwhile, Grenada’s Emergency Powers regulations have been amended giving the CMO power to waive a business place from enforcing the section sub-titled “Physical distancing and sanitation protocols for establishments and businesses” once he is satisfied that all individuals are vaccinated.
