‘Positivity rate low among travellers’

Fiji Times 17 Jan 2022 – The positivity rate among travellers remains low, says Health Ministry permanent secretary Dr James Fong.

He said they continued to support international travel through the mitigation measures outlined in the present protocol for travel partner and non-travel partner countries.

“We are exploring options to transition from hotel stay to homestay for our travellers from travel partner countries,” Dr Fong said.

“This will require a broad network of private partners who can provide rapid testing sites that can track those that need to be tested and facilitate timely reporting of all results and defaulters.
