    Im a bit confused. So a vaccinated individual coming in by plane will need to be quarantined but cruise ship passengers won’t be. Poor planning. Shouldn’t have said anything until you make sense.

    Hey will someone just do us a favor and break this 30page, I don’t know, is it 20pages into readable form? The info I needed is all the way on page 17 or 18. Maybe the 30 page thing is another way of saying to people just don’t come wait till next carnival when there’s a better handle on things? Asking for a friend :-x

  3. Which vaccine?

    Up to me, all those who seek to enter the country… quarantine! The covid vaccines DO NOT prevent you from contracting and or spreading covid. Being vaccinated DOES NOT change the incubation periods either. “The incubation period for COVID-19 is thought to extend to 14 days, with a median time of 4-5 days from exposure to symptoms onset. One study reported that 97.5% of people with COVID-19 who have symptoms will do so within 11.5 days of SARS-CoV-2 infection.”

    Does this include vaccinated travelers from all countries? I’ve been waiting for a relaxation of those onerous quarantine regulations to plan a trip to Dominica. As a diaspora Dominican I’m not about to pay how much money just to quarantine for a week. As for ‘Safe in Nature’, I grew up in it I don’t need no managed experience.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 5 Thumb down 3

    Same thing saying. Is visiting expatriates that will be visiting dca. And they will all make sure they get there vaccine before travelling. And most won’t come because who wants to sit in quarantine for 2 days in dca and pay money to a greedy gov when they can go bados and don’t have to quarantine if u have had both vaccines

      You are always so negative, just go Bdos or stay home for now. Before covid you’d spend more than one day that’s 24+ hours overnighting, what’s in 2 days to be on the safe side to travel during a pandemic?

    So studies show that our only hope of combatting covid-19 is for all of us to get vaccinated and Skerrit and Dr. McIntyre are still penalizing those who are fully vaccinated with a 3 day quarantine? Look foolishness Wii. So people like Blessing, that Allyne guy and others should continue to tell people that the vaccine is false man. No PM you have it wrong and upside down. Those who are fully vaccinated should be tested upon arrival and if they are negative they should go home. Those with only one vaccine and those that are not vaccinated should be quarantined. Those who are fully vaccinated should not have to pay for the stupidity and ignorance of those who refuse to get vaccinated for free. If they want to take the risk and not get vaccinated then they should bear the cost since their protection is available and Free. In fact Lennox Linton and the UWp should show leadership by using their Workers voice program to encourage people to get vaccinated for their own well-being.

  7. My little take
    May 19, 2021

    I know Skerrit is after the quarantine money to help his failed economy, but by sending fully vaccinated people, especially returning Dominicans to quarantine for 2-3 days is sending a very mixed and confused message to the already ignorant Dominicans like myself. He is indirectly telling citizens that vaccine is not real and not working period. Now if that is the case WHY ask Dominicans to take the vaccine if you know it’s not safe? Too much double standard, confusion and flat out ignorance!
    To me if the vaccine is safe (no doubt it is safe and helps fight covid-19 as seen in the US and the world), then Skerrit and the minister should welcome those that are fully vaccinated, with no quarantine except with a PCR test upon arrival and in so doing that would encourage nationals to get vaccinated. But what he and the doctor announced is indirectly putting fear, confusion and panic in the minds of people and indirectly telling people that they should not get vaccinated

  8. Figure it out

    Visitors will not be coming to sit in quarantine. Might as well lay off your tourist jobs for good.

    This info doesn’tmake it clear if a vaccinated traveller still needs to do all the pre flight pcrtesting, form filling etc. If they are going to put out info, they shouldprovide all of it otherwise it will leqd to confusion.

      Yes it did. It’s clearly stated on page 7. Strange that it is required although unvaccinated travelers from high risk countries seem to be given a pass if they don’t have it (page 14) and get the option to just have the rapid test done on arrival. My beef is that an unvaccinated traveler from low and medium risk countries can go straight home if they have negative rapid test but no such policy is stated for vaccinated or recovered passengers from those same countries. That makes no sense whatsoever.
