Like so many people across the globe, people are eager to get back to exploring the spectacular destinations the world has to offer. The Caribbean Public Health Agency, CARPHA, has created a new app and health stamp which is making it possible to get travel back to what the world once knew.

The Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO), Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) and the Global Tourism Resilience and Crisis Management Centre (GTRCMC) have united with CARPHA to form the COVID-19 Tourism Task Force, resulting in the Proactive COVID-19 Health Measures for Tourism, a Caribbean Travellers Health Mobile App and a Travellers Health Assurance Stamp.

These new measures utilize the early warning and response information systems to capture real time illness data, reducing the spread and reputational damage.

With these being aimed at building travellers assurance and resilience, certified training has been brought in to reassure travellers that their journey to the Caribbean will be as enjoyable as it was pre-Covid with all the new health measures in place. Certified training in Covid-19 health measures cover testing, wearing masks appropriately, the fulfilment of social distancing and good hand hygiene and sanitation of public places. This will extend beyond hotel and resort stays to the entire passenger journey.

The Health Assurance Stamp recognises accommodations and services which adhere to health and safety measures, with those achieving the standard being listed on the App. This will in due course be extended to include passenger ships.

The app additionally provides travel health information for each individual destination, including healthcare facilities, accommodation, health alerts of current public health issues, COVID-19 proactive/prevention measures and unique travel requirements by country (testing, health screening, pre-approval and tracking). 

Being the first of its kind, the Caribbean traveller’s health information repository is designed for both travellers and health and tourism stakeholders.

Both the Caribbean Travellers Health App and Health Assurance Stamp will be launched on November 5th, available on Apple App Store and Google Play.
