COVID-19 Public Health Emergency ending

Please be advised that all remaining COVID-19 protocols will cease to have the force of law from December 22nd, 2022 as the underlying Proclamation is expiring pursuant to House of Assembly Resolution No. 18/2022.

Going forward, wearing a face mask will no longer be required as a matter of law. However, certain healthcare facilities such as the Queen Elizabeth Hospital may still ask persons to wear a face mask within their premises in the interest of protecting vulnerable patients.
