Health Protection Agency (HPA) on Thursday published guidelines under which individuals will be allowed to travel freely from one island to the other without quarantine after April 20th.
According to the directive published by HPA, individuals who have completed their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine will be permitted to quarantine free travel to islands with a 60% vaccinated population.
Furthermore, it said a negative PCR test was mandatory if the island individual was travelling from has 5% positive cases and same applies to individuals who are not eligible for vaccinations, such as minors. In addition to this, HPA said they will later reveal islands with 5% or more recorded positive cases.
However, individuals arriving in the country from abroad would not be required to quarantine or present a negative PCR test if they have completed their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine. These conditions will not apply to health workers, daycare center workers, school workers, and residential care service providers as they will be required to provide a negative PCR test once they arrive in the country.
