On Saturday June 6th, 2020 eleven St Lucians returned home on board the Royal Vision of the Seas. Upon their return were screened by Port Health personnel and subsequently transferred to a government operated quarantine facility where they will be housed for a period of 14 days.
The Minister responsible for External Affairs, Sarah Flood-Beaubrun, while acknowledging the successes of the ongoing repatriation process, noted the following, “As many as we are able to bring home through various means, we are acutely aware of the many more that we must continue our efforts in finding solutions in returning them home safely. “Our repatriation team is redoubling efforts to ensure that they too can be facilitated”.
As the Department of External Affairs and the Government continue to explore the most feasible options to facilitate the speedy repatriation of all nationals who wish to return home, nationals abroad are reminded to keep in regular contact with the nearest Saint Lucian Embassy and Consulate, along with the office for Diaspora Affairs.
