“Palladium Hotel Group takes another step towards revitalizing travel by encouraging employees at its Dominican Republic properties to receive vaccination.
The hotel group plans to administer vaccination to all employees who wish to receive it by Friday, April 30.
Vaccination efforts have begun at all six Dominican Republic properties: Grand Palladium Palace Resort, Spa & Casino, Grand Palladium Bávaro Suites Resort & Spa, Grand Palladium Punta Cana Resort & Spa, TRS Turquesa Hotel, TRS Cap Cana Hotel, and Dominican Fiesta Hotel & Casino.
With the launch of the Dominican Republic’s Responsible Recovery of Tourism plan and its “Vacúnate RD” campaign, the destination aims to vaccinate the country’s 7.8 million adults by the end of 2021.
While Palladium Hotel Group is not requiring employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine, the hotel group is highly recommending it.
With that said, the vaccine has been widely accepted by hotel staff. On-property vaccination efforts began Monday, April 26 in the ballrooms of Palladium Hotel Group’s Dominican Republic properties.
News reports have stated that many cruise lines will be mandating that crew and guests have received the Covid vaccine: https://www.travelandleisure.com/cruises/virgin-voyages-cruises-requiring-covid-vaccine
“Virgin Voyages has announced that all passengers will be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 before boarding future cruises.
A spokesperson for the cruise line confirmed to Travel + Leisure on Tuesday that they were “committed to fully vaccinated cruises, which includes both passengers and crew” when service resumes, expected later this year.”
As I’ve stated many times, it’s inevitable, in my opinion, that the United States will require a COVID passport to travel to and from the U.S.
Stay tuned for further updates.
