“We are seeing a waning of this acute phase of the pandemic. But please note the pandemic is still with us. As of Wednesday, June 1, 2022, I am authorized by the prime minister to tell the country, especially those who travel, that the TT Travel Pass system will be discontinued.

“What this means is that un-vaxxed national and non-nationals can enter Trinidad and Tobago, so you don’t have to prove your vaccination status. However, you do have to provide either a negative PCR or antigen test (taken) 48 hours prior to entry.

“In the absence of a test that person will be asked to go into state-supervised quarantine at their cost and provide a negative PCR or antigen at any time during their quarantine period as a condition of release before going home,” Deyalsingh told reporters.

In April, Trinidad and Tobago issued orders to ease multiple COVID-19-related restrictions, all limits on public gatherings and restrictions regarding access to beaches and rivers will be lifted. The TT Safe Zone restrictions, which imposed restrictions on certain businesses, were also discontinued.

He said other health restrictions such as mask-wearing, social distancing, and handwashing remain in effect.

“All other measures stay in place, for example masking. We continue to ask people to adhere to the public health guidelines, especially about masking.”

Trinidad and Tobago has recorded 3, 897 deaths and 159, 676 infections since the first case was recorded in March 2020.
