Chief Medical Officer Dr. Kenneth George says Barbados will be shortly updating its travel protocols with new guidelines for people who have been vaccinated overseas and are travelling to Barbados.
He made the disclosure speaking during the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association quarterly general meeting.
This follows the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announcing an ease in restrictions which now allows among other things, fully vaccinated people to meet without masks.
President of Barbados Association of Medical Practitioners Dr. Lynda Williams stresses that even though some Barbadians have been vaccinated there should be no relaxation of the local safety protocols.
Chair of the Barbados Tourism Marketing Incorporated Roseanne Myers is confident Barbados tourism sector will rebound from the setback of COVID-19 but says this will only be achieved in tandem with following the health protocols.
