“As you may be aware, many nations comprehensive are currently encountering new waves of the coronavirus. Getting immunized continues to be one of the best safeguards against this coronavirus pandemic and getting our (St Lucians) lives back to the remarkable level of normalcy,” he added.
After seeing this post of PM, people reacted, and one of the residents commented, “Front liners need better benefits packages, esp. for this Covid-19 crisis. E.g. At-risk benefits… How are our families covered? The staffing is so short the same frontlines are being used repeatedly to accomplish tasks such as this one. Front liners are mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, sisters, brothers…etc. we are human beings.. we. all get the point.”
Another resident stated, “When will the protocol change for persons coming in who are fully vaccinated? I am a frontline worker, fully vaccinated, and I test every week; I quarantined for 14 days in December when I came home. The other islands are already implementing the change of 48 hrs quarantine once fully vaccinated and come with a negative test 72 hours before travel; when will St. Lucia follow.”
