COVID-19 measures as of August 13th 2021

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, mainly the high level of infections in the region, we still need to keep restrictions in place on the island.

As of August 13th until further notice this implies:

For all places where the public gathers, which are at least: bars, restaurants, shops, supermarkets, churches and public accessible buildings it is advised that:

  • The operator of the premises has hand sanitizer at their entrance and assures that patrons make use of it
  • The operator of the premises assures that social distancing is possible through adequate placing of tables, chairs and routing within the premises.
  • The staff of the premises has to wear a facemask,
  • The visitors of the premises have to wear a facemask as long as they are not seated.

The advice applies both for inside and outside venues.

Music played by bands or DJ’s is not permitted as during dancing keeping social distancing is not possible

During the coming week the Public Entity St. Eustatius will work on a more detailed regulation which will make certain measures on the island mandatory.
