The organizers of fetes have indicated that they are capable of testing 300 patrons at the door of the event.
The Cabinet accepted that offer, so that patrons to fetes do not have to be tested on the day prior to the event.
However, the requirement that all patrons be fully vaccinated, show their vaccination ID card before entry, and also take the rapid antigen test before entering, still holds.
The policy is based on the likelihood of high transmissibility of the COVID-19 virus.
