New regulations have been put in place on persons traveling from the United Kingdom to T&T in light of a new strain of COVID-19 in the UK.
The Health Ministry the following will apply to these persons when the time between the date of departure and the date of arrival is 14 days or less:
1. A negative PCR test within 72 hrs prior to travelling (also necessary for all persons entering Trinidad and Tobago at this time).
2. A mandatory 14-day quarantine period to be spent in a state or state supervised facility.
It says this new protocol deviates from the current quarantine period to be served by persons entering the country from other high-risk countries.
This remains 7 days in state or state supervised quarantine followed by 7 days home quarantine.
