Covid restrictions lifted; travel entry requirements also changed

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has announced the lifting of all Covid-19 restrictions.

Speaking at today’s media briefing at the Diplomatic Centre in St Ann’s, Rowley firstly congratulated his health minister along with the Covid management team, and all health care workers, prior to announcing that the Safe Zone operations will be lifted, allowing for the mingling of vaccinated and unvaccinated.

He stated that as of Sunday, 28th March 2022, Covid antigen tests will be accepted from passengers arriving in Trinidad and Tobago, replacing the need for a negative PCR test. Soon, the travelpass system will be lifted.

The PM also stated that:
-All restrictions lifted on visiting rivers and beaches, from Monday.
-No limit to public gatherings, from April 4.
-Masks will remain in force in public places, except on a sporting field.

Rowley said what some described as “the worst health care system in the world”, came to the rescues of citizens, and had gotten a “high pass grade” internationally.

He said that people needed to continue taking precautions since there are some countries that are dealing with spikes in Covid infections, and mutations of the virus.
