CARPHA launches travellers app to help persons prepare for post-pandemic world


    CARPHA has launched the Caribbean Travellers Health Assurance Stamp and the Caribbean Travellers Health App, to help prepare persons for the post-pandemic world.

    The stamp, which is measurable and verifiable, is an assurance to travellers that the hospitality facility they are using qualifies as “healthier, safer, tourism”.

    The Healthier Safer Tourism (HST) awarded facilities meanwhile will be listed on the app.

    Speaking at the launch this morning was Tourism and Culture Minister Randall Mitchell said that these two timely interventions underscore this country’s assurance to its travellers.

    To date, the Health Ministry has produced several health and safety guidelines for the reopening of the country’s economy, while the Piarco and the A.N.R. Robinson airports have both achieved accreditation through the Airport Council International and the Airport Health Accreditation Programme.

    Minister Mitchell is confident that stakeholders in Trinidad and Tobago will qualify for CARPHA’s stamp and be listed on the app.
