All Covid restrictions have been lifted but public health recommendations are:
- to wear a mask when in indoor crowded spaces;
- follow public institutions and business companies own mask wearing requirements.
Restaurants and entertainment/ recreation facilities operate at full capacity.

The requirement to complete a Passenger Locator Form / Declaration has been voided.
All visitors will still need to comply with any testing requirements imposed by airlines and/or government of the country of departure (and transit).
