Curfew: The island-wide curfew imposed on March 15, 2020 is now eliminated. With the removal of the curfews, commercial activity can operate from 5 a.m. to 12 midnight seven days a week.
Updated Passenger Arrival Protocol: A new Executive Order 2021-037 was issued amending the entry requirements for vaccinated travelers arriving from US domestic destinations. The updated protocol is as follows:
- All arriving passengers, from domestic and international destinations, must complete the online Travel Declaration Form.
- Entry requirement based on one of the following three scenarios:
- Fully vaccinated travelers flying in from any US domestic destination are no longer required a negative PCR molecular test result within 72 hours of arrival, as long as they can prove vaccination administration. Vaccinated passengers will have the opportunity to upload their official Vaccination Card through the Travel Declaration Form portal.
- Non-vaccinated travelers arriving from a US Domestic destination are still required to provide evidence of a pre-departure COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of arrival. The negative result must be from a qualified SARS-CoV2 viral test; either nucleic acid amplification test ("NAAT") or an antigen test.
- International arriving passengers, regardless of vaccination status, are required to provide evidence of a pre-departure negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of arrival as required by the CDC. The negative result must be from a qualified SARS-CoV2 viral test; either a nucleic acid amplification test ("NAAT") or an antigen test taken at an authorized center.
Quarantine: If a traveler does not meet any of the three criteria above, a mandatory quarantine must be observed and the arriving passenger has up to 48 hours to get tested for COVID-19 and upload results. If uploaded result is negative, the quarantine is lifted. If the result is positive, the person must isolate themselves and follow the local isolation protocol at his/her own expense.
Use of Face Coverings and Masks: Vaccinated travelers are now exempt from the required use of face coverings while at the beach and outdoor public spaces. The use of face coverings at indoor spaces continues to be mandatory for everyone, regardless of vaccination status. Non-vaccinated travelers or those who cannot properly prove vaccination status, must wear face coverings at all times (indoors and outdoors).
Hotel Food and Beverage Services: Now that the curfew will be eliminated, hotel and lodging guests can enjoy 24 hour service in all food and drinks venues within the lodging properties.
Capacity Limitation: The occupancy for commercial venues increased to a maximum of 50% (previously 30% limit). Maintaining the safe distance of 6'' between patrons and securing the hygiene standards, commercial activity can now operate up to half of its regular capacity.
