The Barbados government says it is discontinuing all COVID-19-related travel protocols for entering the island, approving a number of fundamental changes to the COVID-19 directives that have governed the management of the pandemic since early 2021.
Acting Prime Minister Santia Bradshaw said the measures go into effect today.
There will therefore be no testing requirements for entering Barbados for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.
Masks, according to the acting Prime Minister, will now be optional in general.
However, mask-wearing remains mandatory for people in nursing homes, private hospitals, and senior citizen homes.
