According to government announcements made on Wednesday, visitors to Trinidad and Tobago will no longer be able to get Coronavirus (COVID-19) travel passes from June 1st.
International, regional, and local statistics show that the virus’s acute phase has passed, according to Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh, who addressed the Ministry of Health’s virtual media conference.
“The acute phase of the epidemic is coming to a close,” says one expert. It is important to emphasize, however, that the outbreak is still occurring. My aim is to notify the general public, especially frequent travelers, that the TT Travel Pass system will be phased out on June 1, 2022.
This means that non-immunized visitors to Trinidad and Tobago are not obliged to show proof of immunization. According to Deyalsingh, “you must provide either a negative PCR or an antigen test (done) 48 hours before entry.”
According to him, if a person does not have a test, he or she must endure state-supervised quarantine at their own expense, where they must submit a negative PCR or antigen at any time during their stay as a condition of release before being permitted to return home.According to the official, other restrictions such as mask wearing, social isolation, and hand washing remain in effect.
Existing safety precautions, such as masking and concealment, remain in place. “We continue to advise people to adhere to public health standards, especially when it comes to masking,” he said.
There have been 3,897 deaths and 159,676 illnesses in Trinidad and Tobago since the first case was reported in March of 2020.
