Prime Minister of Barbados Mia Mottley has issued an invitation to Canadians to “come home” to Barbados and the Caribbean to get some relief from the stress of COVID-19, but that country is still advising its citizens against international travel.
While speaking on CBC (Canada’s) Power & Politics Mottley said:
“I know everyone needs some relief from the mental crisis that has been brought upon us by the pandemic, . . . come home and enjoy your time in Barbados; we’ll wait for you with open arms,” she said, also including other areas in the Caribbean.
However the Canadian Government is currently advising against non-essential travel outside of the country at this time. People returning to Canada from abroad are subject to mandatory 14-day quarantine.
