St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): It’s June 01 and the St. Christopher Air and Sea Ports Authority’s (SCASPA) notice requiring people doing business with the air and seaports on St. Kitts to show proof of vaccination is still displayed on its Facebook page.
The notice sparked a heated debate on social media when it was first published on Wednesday, May 26. It stated:
“The St. Christopher Air and Sea Ports Authority (SCASPA) wishes to advise the Public, that effective June 1, 2021, all persons wishing to conduct business at the Ports’ Facilities (both Air and Sea), must present proof of Covid-19 Vaccination or a valid negative RT-PCR Test taken within the past 14 (fourteen) days.
This decision has become necessary to prevent the transmission of the virus to the employees and stakeholders conducting business within SCASPAs’ space.”
The cabinet was due to discuss the issue on Monday (May 31) and offer guidelines that would take effect today June 01.
Tuesday morning there was no announcement from Cabinet on its decision.
