Press Release

St. Vincent and the Grenadines is currently classified as low risk for the transmission of COVID-19 However, some of our close neighbors such as Trinidad, St. Lucia and Martinique are classified as high risk and travelers from these countries have a higher risk of being infected with the Coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

All residents in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, especially those in the Southern Grenadines, North Windward and North Leeward communities of St. Vincent and the Grenadines such as Union Island, Fancy and Chateaubelair, must be especially careful and avoid any contact with persons traveling from these countries who have not been screened by our Port Health Teams.

Additionally, persons who are aware of unscreened travelers from these countries or who have themselves been in contact with such persons or who traveled to these high-risk neighboring countries should alert their district health team. The public is reminded that most persons with COVID-19 do not have any symptoms, but can still infect persons they come into contact with.
