PRESS RELEASE
GOVERNMENT OF SAINT LUCIA ANNOUNCES STRICKER PROTOCOLS TO ADDRESS COVID-19 COMMUNITY SPREAD

Given the current status of active cases and projections, the Government of Saint Lucia is implementing protocols in order to curb the spread of COVID-19 to be effective today, Friday October 30th 2020 and to remain in effect for the next 30 DAYS.

On the recommendations by the Chief Medical Officer (CMO), Command Centre and following a consultative session with the National Emergency Management Advisory Committee (NEMAC) and various stakeholders, the Cabinet of Ministers has implemented the following:

•​WORK FROM HOME WHERE POSSIBLE
All agencies and businesses should implement a Blended Service/ Operations Approach where possible for the employees. The approach should allow for the functioning of all services and operations utilizing online platforms and standard health protocol where feasible. This will reduce the physical numbers in the workplace and curb possible transmission.

•​REDUCED MASS CROWD EVENTS
Mass Crowd Events are reduced from 50 to 25 People per Venue per Activity.

•​RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS
Religious Institutions are to be guided by the square footage of their respective spaces. Each religious institution must be aware of how many people can access the building but the maximum number of people - 100 for those institutions that are very large.

•​BUSINESS OPERATING HOURS
Cease of all business operations and commercial activities by 9:00PM. Essentially, this will assert a “Minimal Operations” approach. Exemptions will be listed. This will discourage the physical spread of people during typical hours of high-risk business activity island wide.

•​EXTENDED CLOSURE OF SCHOOL COMPOUNDS
Public and Private Educational Institutions should extend the closure of compounds and ensure continued learning via alternate and telecommunication mediums. This aligns with those aimed at reduced physical activity and mass gatherings.

•​NO CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL ON PREMISES
Sale of Alcohol permissible – GRAB AND GO BUSINESS AT BARS ONLY. All BARS and RESTURANTS to close by 9 pm. This will assist in limiting high-risk social gatherings and curb the possibility of community spread.

•​SPORTING ACTIVITY CHANGE - NO CONTACT SPORTS
The hosting of any contact-sports, high-risk sporting activities and events will be discouraged. NON contact sports will be listed. This will assist in limiting high-risk social gatherings and curb the possibility of community spread.

• LIMIT MOVEMENT – ADVISORY
Voluntarily limiting movement between 9pm and 5 am. The Government encourages staying at home between the hours of 9:00PM to 5:00AM in order to discourage the physical spread of people during typical hours of high-risk social activity island wide.

The Government is calling on all Saint Lucians to join the effort in observing the protocols and keeping Saint Lucia safe.

End.

DISABILITY COMMUNITY IN SAINT LUCIA TO RECEIVE SUPPORT

The Embassy of Saint Lucia in Washington DC recently partnered with the Authentic Caribbean Foundation (ACF), to provide assistance to the disability community in Saint Lucia. According to Ambassador Edmunds, “Considering the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our economy in Saint Lucia, this engagement affords us an opportunity to deliver for the most vulnerable with our society”. The ACF donated backpacks for students with disabilities, along with clothing and food supplies. The National Council Of and For Persons with Disabilities (NCPD) in Saint Lucia will be responsible for distributing the items to those in need, working closely with the Ministry of Education’s Special Education Unit.

ACF has also began discussions with the Ministry of Education’s Special Education Unit to assess the needs of students with disability within the public education system, with the ultimate goal of providing targeted assistance to our most vulnerable students.

The Authentic Caribbean Foundation, founded in 2012, is a non-profit organization based in Boston geared towards transforming the lives of Caribbean children and their caregivers - impacted by disabilities and HIV/AIDS, through health and educational support.

SAINT LUCIA'S ADDRESS TO THE 50TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE OAS

H.E. Anton Edmunds, addressed the 50th Regular Session of the General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS) earlier today, where he underscored the importance of and advocated for a deeper collective and inclusive approach to address inter alia - border security challenges, vulnerable and marginalized groups including women, the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) sector and issues relating to climate change in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. This particularly as relates to the advancement of small island and low-lying coastal developing states like Saint Lucia.

The OAS General Assembly, which is normally held each June, was the first to be held virtually due to the unprecedented environment brought on by the global pandemic. Its overarching theme “Facing the Challenges of COVID-19 in the Hemisphere: A Collaborative Approach to Address Vulnerabilities and Build Resilience in the Times of Crisis, Based on the Four Pillars of the OAS” provided an opportunity for its member states to highlight the adverse social, environmental and developmental impact on countries by the coronavirus.

Leading up to the Assembly, delegations deliberated on actions and policies to strengthen ongoing work of the Organization as well as to guide its future work within its four pillars of security, democracy, human rights and integral development. These resolutions in turn were considered by the Assembly for adoption and subsequent implementation. Elections of officers to organs, agencies and entities of the OAS also took place during the proceedings. On the fringes of the General Assembly, OAS member states engaged in dialogue with representatives of civil society organizations and Permanent Observers.

The General Assembly is the supreme organ of the Organization of American States (OAS).

Saint Lucia launches new campaign for 'Winter Sun Season'

The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority continues to welcome people back to Saint Lucia with the release of the second video in the ‘She is Saint Lucia…Let Her Inspire You’ series. The new film aims to inspire more visitors as it showcases the destination as an ideal getaway.

Saint Lucia has been designated as “No Travel Health Notice: COVID-19 Risk is Very Low” by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). It currently has the lowest rates of Covid-19 in the Caribbean, with no active cases.

The new video features a range of experiences available once more to visitors. As part of the phased reopening of tourism, new attractions and activities such as the mud baths at the Sulphur Springs, horseback riding and diving are now open to guests. ‘She is Saint Lucia…Let Her Inspire You’ highlights these experiences along with the warm hospitality of the people as visitors continue to be safely welcomed back to the island.

The uplifting short film is central to a broader global campaign. In North America, the video will be utilized in digital marketing, television advertising and social media. Throughout the video, clips of Saint Lucia’s unique experiences appear against the backdrop of its stunning landscape to build interest and excitement in the destination.

The Honorable Minister of Tourism Dominic Fedee said, “We have been heartened and humbled with the positive response to reopening our borders again to visitors. To date, we have welcomed more than 6,000 holidaymakers, who have been kept safe and had a wonderful time. Our first video had a message of reassurance. Now it’s time to build on that and inspire travelers by reminding them of the unique experiences that our beautiful island has to offer once more. We continue to diligently work to support our local citizens and our tourism partners and look forward to the season ahead.”

The Covid-certified experiences that can be enjoyed in Saint Lucia are:

1. Atlantic Shores Riding Stables
2. Balenbouche Estate *Reopening date to be announced
3. Diamond Waterfalls & Botanical Gardens
4. Gros Piton Trail
5. Pigeon Island National Landmark
6. Rainforest Adventures - ziplining
7. Sulphur Springs – mud baths and hot springs
8. Toraille Falls *Reopening December 2020
9. Diving
10. Water-based activities including boat hire

More information about Saint Lucia’s COVID-19 response, including live updates about safety protocols and what travellers should expect as the phased reopening continues, can be found at www.stlucia.org/covid-19.
