Popular sunshine holiday destination scraps all Covid rules for Brits – regardless of vaccination status

A CARIBBEAN holiday hotspot has announced it is scrapping all Covid entry rules for Brits, regardless of vaccination status.

The tri-island state of Grenada, which includes Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique, will ditch all its Covid restrictions from April 4.

Currently, vaccinated Brits need to show evidence of a negative PCR test taken within three days prior to travelling, or a negative antigen test taken within one day prior to travelling, as well as proof of vaccination.

Unvaccinated Brits must quarantine for seven days at an approved accommodation and must get a negative result from a PCR test on day five to be allowed out.

However, from Monday those rules are all being scrapped, so travellers won't need any tests or proof of vaccination to enter.

Additionally, the mandatory face mask mandate will be lifted on April 4.

Shawn Charles, chief medical officer for ministry of health Grenada, was "delighted" to announce the changes.

According to Travel Weekly, he said: "Grenada is at a stage where we can consider the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions, even though we are aware the pandemic is not yet over.

"We're delighted to be able to offer all travellers a seamless and easy travel experience and we're looking forward to welcoming them to our beautiful islands."

Grenada isn't the only Caribbean destination relaxing Covid rules.
