The Discover Dominica Authority encourages all stakeholders within the Tourism Industry to get vaccinated.

The call came from the CEO of DDA, and the Director of Tourism, Mr. Colin Piper. He said 57% of the stakeholders are fully vaccinated.

He stated that they’ve been in contact with 513 or so of their stakeholders, whether they are property owners or vendors, tour guides, or taxi drivers.

Piper further stated that the DDA is also in contact with the few who have decided not to get vaccinated, and to impress upon them the importance of getting vaccinated- not only for curtailing the spread of the virus but for their livelihood as well.

He explained that ‘because in particular from the cruise we’re asking all stakeholders to be vaccinated, this is something that was discussed with the cruise line and so definitely, you know that’s something we need to adhere to.’

Piper further encouraged all stakeholders and the wider population to get vaccinated.
