Authorities have said people traveling between St Kitts and Nevis do not have to show proof of the COVID-19 vaccine but must comply with all health and safety protocols created to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Obadiah Samuel, chairman of the national COVID-19 task force, said several people wondered about the issue and noted that it was the subject of much discussion. In this capacity, he met with the CEO of the St. Christopher Air and Sea Ports Authority (SCASPA) and the Chairman of the Board to discuss the subject.
“They indicated that no citizen, resident or visitor traveling between the islands is required to have proof of vaccination,” Obadiah Samuel.
The chairman of the national COVID-19 task force also said that Note, however, that these non-pharmaceutical measures are necessary at ferry terminals, including wearing a face mask and maintaining social distancing.
Non-pharmaceutical measures include wearing face masks in public spaces, regularly disinfecting hands and maintaining physical distance, which have been largely successful in containing local transmission of COVID-19. To date, the Federation of the Twin Islands has recorded 69 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus with 48 recoveries and no deaths.
Ferries between St. Kitts and Nevis are currently only operating at half of its passenger capacity, as health officials tackle a cluster of cases that have led to 21 active cases of COVID-19.
