Safe zone clarification to come within the week says CMO

Chief medical officer, Dr Roshan Parasram says further announcements on the safe zone policy will come within the week.

He made the comment at yesterday’s COVID media briefing in response to a question by Power 102 Digital regarding the rollout of the plan.

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley announced last week that soon, persons will be required to show their vaccination card if they wish to access various establishments.

We pointed out to Dr Parasram that although Planning Minister Camille Robinson-Regis was set to meet with stakeholders on the matter, as it stood, the policy appears to be inconsistent.

We noted that while vaccination cards are needed for gyms and restaurants etc, there is no such policy in place for state entities which people visit often such as Licensing Department or T&TEC.

Dr Parasram however said that the operational details of the plan were not yet complete and suggested that it would be addressed by the Government rather than the health officials.
