SLHTA applauds adjustments to COVID-19 Protocols

The Saint Lucia Hospitality & Tourism Association (SLHTA) has described Government’s adjustments to the COVID-19 Prevention and Control regulations some from Friday, June 25, 2021 and others from Thursday, July 1, 2021, as a positive move worthy of praise.

In a statement the SLHTA said its “elation in response to these relaxed protocols is resounding as we believe that the food and beverage, transportation and events sectors and their respective linkage industries will be afforded some measure of breathing space in their operations”.

SLHTA Chief Executive Officer, Noorani Azeez said “The relaxing of the COVID-19 protocols facilitates greater trade within the private sector, drives employment, addresses domestic issues as families are still hurting, and allows the private sector an opportunity to do what it has done best over the past years, namely drive employment and grow the economy.”

The SLHTA also welcomes the news that Saint Lucia will safely reintroduce cruise tourism to Port Castries on Tuesday June 29, 2021, when Celebrity Millennium arrives at Pointe Seraphine.
