The requirement to present a vaccination certificate on arrival, as well as a negative COVID-19 PCR test, will be eliminated
Cuba will relax health measures for travellers entering the Caribbean country starting Wednesday, the Ministry of Public Health announced Monday. The requirement to present a vaccination certificate on arrival, as well as a negative COVID-19 PCR test, will be eliminated.
Random sampling for COVID-19 will continue at ports and airports, and it will be mostly aimed at people coming from countries with a high incidence rate, while people who test positive will be hospitalized following the existing protocol. Other health measures such as physical distancing, hand washing, surface cleaning and the use of masks, will be maintained.
The Ministry elaborated that these relaxations had taken into account the high immunization rate against COVID-19 with more than 9.9 of its 11.2 million residents being vaccinated.
