With 24 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in total since the beginning of the pandemic, Grenada was on full lock-down for a week in April. The country now allows entry on the island from other low-risk and medium-risk countries. Travelers coming from these countries are required to present a certified copy of a negative COVID-19 test. Grenada is not a party to the 1951 Refugee Convention, and has no formal policy regarding refugees. The GDP was unable to confirm if any measures had been taken for asylum-seekers during the pandemic.
