St Lucia’s covid rules have changed

St Lucia and Barbados have stiffened their Covid-19 protocols.

From Feb. 10, all arrivals to Saint Lucia (aged 5 years or older) must provide a negative result from a Covid-19 PCR test taken no more than five days before arrival, down from the previous requirement to produce a test taken seven days prior to arrival.

In line with existing protocols, arrivals must also complete and submit a travel registration form, and adhere to safety protocols in place throughout the island, including wearing a mask in public places.

Screening and temperature checks are mandatory at ports of entry and throughout visitors’ stay, and transfers must be carried out by a certified taxi to Covid-19 approved accommodation.

In Barbados, a curfew has been extended from 7pm to 6am, instead of 9pm to 6am from until Feb. 17.

Beaches will only be open between 7am and 9am and for exercise and swimming only until that date, and some non-essential businesses will remain closed.

This is in addition to existing protocols which include providing a PCR test taken three days before travel. Visitors must remain in their room at their accommodation for five days and then take a second Covid 19 PCR test.
