The CDC recently assessed the destination’s COVID-19 as very low and designated it as ‘No Travel Notice’ required, having had only 19 cases of the Coronavirus, no community spread and no deaths.
Stakeholders in every sector of the industry have been trained in health and safety protocols, which include a comprehensive system of inspection and monitoring to encourage everyone to maintain the basic standards. Those that have been inspected and meet the ‘Travel Approved’ criteria will receive a ‘Travel Approved’ seal, which allows St. Kitts and Nevis to promote these businesses on their respective websites. Those without the seal are not approved for visitors.
