Chile finally lifts all coronavirus restrictions

Chile has finally lifted all coronavirus-related restrictions

It finally happened. Almost all countries of the world have abandoned quarantine and mask regimes, vaccine passports have also been forgotten, but in Chile, the fight against COVID-19 continued until last week. Only on May 9, the Chilean Ministry of Health “surrendered”: the country will no longer implement the “Protected Borders Plan”; and renounces restrictive and preventive measures.

The latest decision was made after the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the end of the public health emergency of international concern (ESPII) due to SARS-CoV2.

Thus, tourists will no longer need a PCR test or a COVID-19 vaccination certificate when entering Chile, and they will not be randomly tested.

It should be noted here, however that, although the epidemic threat due to coronavirus is reduced, there are other respiratory viruses that begin to actively circulate on the eve of the winter months in the southern hemisphere.

Therefore, citizens and visitors to the country are strongly advised to keep their own vaccinations up to date condition”, including against the common flu, as well as follow the hygiene rules that were adopted during the pandemic: frequent handwashing, airing enclosed spaces and using masks where necessary.
