Since Monday, 7 September, visitors have been allowed at the hospitals again, and people who have business at the hospitals are no longer required to wear a mask.

Now, less than a week later, the National Hospital has decided to implement some restrictions again. The reason for this being the several travellers who’ve tested positive for COVID-19 these last couple of weeks.

– All visitors who have recently been abroad need to have tested negative for COVID-19 on the sixth day after their arrival, before they can visit, the National Hospital announced on Saturday.

This rule will come into effect on Monday, 14 September.

Since 6 August, all travellers have been advised to get tested for COVID-19 on the sixth day after their arrival, along with the mandatory test they have to get upon arrival.
