Cabinet held a discussion on Covid-19 and the mandates and protocols that have been guiding Governments’ policy since March 2020. The mandate requiring all persons entering Government buildings to provide proof of vaccination is no longer required.

All other protocols remain in place including, hand washing, social distancing and wearing of masks. It is Cabinet intention to make mask wearing optional shortly. Cabinet encourages all those who have not yet been vaccinated to do so in order to increase their protection against any variant that may emerge and might be deadlier than the omicron.

Cabinet noted that there are no patients hospitalized for COVID and that in the past only twenty-three (23) cases were detected.
