Eastern Caribbean COVID-19 Status 

Due to the increasing number of cases of COVID-19 in the Eastern Caribbean, many countries have strengthened measures to combat the further spread of the virus. We urge American Citizens to adhere to the country’s laws, regulations and health protocols in effect.

Many countries in the Eastern Caribbean have also put into place travel restrictions and other health-related measures to include mandatory health screening. Some require advance COVID testing with valid negative test results prior to arrival, testing upon arrival and retesting after a certain number of days. Arriving travelers may also be subject to mandatory quarantine and/or monitoring which may be restricted to a government designated facility or an officially approved accommodation only.
