People can now travel from Viti Levu to Vanua Levu and maritime islands and vice-versa under risk reduction protocols.

This is after the overall vaccination coverage for Vanua Levu and all maritime island groups is now above 80 percent.

In a statement, the Ministry says this means the quarantine requirement will be removed.

They say however, travel will be limited to fully vaccinated persons, passenger capacity on shipping vessels will be restricted, and additional measures will be taken to ensure that all COVID safe measures are stringently enforced during boarding and transit, and while disembarking.

Registration of passengers will no longer be required before travelling.

The Health Ministry also says some parts of Fiji with lower vaccination coverage remain areas of concern, such as the province of Bua, which has an overall vaccination coverage below 80%.

They say specific travel advisories have been issued warning members of the public away from these communities.

The Health Ministry adds some of these areas of concern are in the maritime areas, where there are a number of communities with vaccination rates below 60%.

They further say it is expected that most of the second doses will be administered in these areas by mid-December provided weather conditions remain favourable and until such time, risk mitigation measures will be issued to manage the risks presented by these communities.

The Health Ministry says maritime communities with less than 60% double dose vaccine coverage will be red zoned and highlighted for ongoing escalated community engagement.

It adds that red zoned communities in maritime islands will be required to institute a 7-day quarantine protocol for incoming travellers subject to ongoing changes as advised by the Ministry of Health and Medical Services.

The Ministry of Health expects to fully vaccinate 90% of the eligible adult population in Fiji by tomorrow.

They say pending confirmation of the 90% threshold, the curfew hours will move from 12am to 4am from Sunday, 14 November 2021.
