Puerto Rico Is Reopening Bars Caribbean Journal

Puerto Rico is reopening bars on the island as part of a major relaxation of pandemic restrictions.

From June 7th, bars with a capacity of 50 percent and playrooms will reopen in Puerto Rico.

Outdoor bars and “chinchorros” have no capacity limits, although there must be a physical distance of two meters between parties.

Capacity in stores such as shopping malls, restaurants, casinos and theaters will increase to 75 percent, as will museums and hotel pools.

Other social activities, including business and corporate events, can take place at 75 percent capacity, although attendees are required to present a negative PCR or antigen test or full proof of vaccination.

Puerto Rico has also announced that visitors arriving at Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport can get a Johnson and Johnson vaccine at Terminal Ba.

Puerto Rico also offers Johnson and Johnson vaccines for travelers to Vieques and Culebra at the ferry terminal in Ceiba.

Puerto Rico recently changed its entry protocols and waived the pre-screening requirements for fully vaccinated travelers.
