Three more countries have been added to the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) travel restriction list.
Travellers from Germany, Spain and France are now restricted from entering Trinidad and Tobago due to the outbreak. They follow China, which was the first to be placed on the list on January 30th and Italy, South Korea, Singapore, Japan and Iran on February 27th, bringing the list to a total of nine.
Persons travelling from these countries are subject to a 14-day wait period before being allowed to enter the country. Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago Dr. Keith Rowley made the announcement on March 10, during a live Press Conference at the Piarco International Airport’s VIP Lounge.
“The Minister of Health will take the necessary steps to add those three countries to the list of locations from which travellers coming to us will fall into the protocol,” he said.
There are still no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the twin-island State.
