The COVID-19 Risk Mitigation Taskforce has made changes to Fiji’s COVID Safe Business Protocols which includes nightclubs, currently re-modelled as bars or taverns, may now operate in line with closing hours stipulated in the Liquor Licenses.

The changes also include the VAX-Check tool that will no longer be mandatory for use by any businesses including high-risk, those that are Care Fiji Commitment-certified or business operating a ship under a Coasting-Trade Licence.

The COVID-19 Risk Mitigation Taskforce says businesses that were required to maintain capacity limitations may now operate at full capacity and the permit to operate for high-risk businesses and tourism operators no longer applies.

They say the expression of interest for Private Sector Testing Network now concludes in considering the removal of Fiji’s testing requirements for inbound travellers.

The COVID-19 Risk Mitigation Taskforce reiterates that these flexibilities aim to empower the business community and general public to take greater responsibility in ensuring health and safety.

They say Fijians and Fijian businesses are requested to become self-compliant, therefore, COVID safe measures remain highly encouraged.

The COVID-19 Risk Mitigation Taskforce will continue to review COVID safe measures and entry requirements, with a focus on fostering socio-economic recovery, maintaining border and community surveillance to ensure early warning of future threats, and supporting the mandate for community wide protection through vaccination.
