You Must Present a Vaccine Card or a Negative COVID Test

Along with the new S.I. comes the implementation of a new policy where vaccination cards must be presented for entry into to public buildings and government offices.  Persons who fail to produce a vaccination card must be able to present negative results from rapid or PCR COVID tests.


Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police

“In the case of persons who have not been vaccinated, the PCR and rapid tests will be valid for two weeks.  So every two weeks you’ll have to produce that PCR or rapid test in order to enter any such establishment.  When it comes to employees at these establishments, the regulations provide that the employees must produce the immunization card or a negative PCR or rapid test.  For those employees who do not produce any of those requirements then they will be sent home, marked absent and will be subject to the disciplinary process of that particular office.  Churches remain closed under the new S.I., as well as the prohibition now on the use of ski masks, fishermen masks and other similar type masks that cover the entire head or face.  So based  on the new S.I., I would want to think that the only type of mask you can use would be the surgical mask or the similar mask that people would make that they would normally use, made of cloth.  But the law also makes provisions for business establishments to determine what type of masks they will allow on their premises.  Now while the law does give the business establishment that authority, they will still not be able to allow masks that have now been outlawed by the new regulations.”
