This is what it says the summary from the municipality office and after I read it, confirms that is for visitors.
– – “The Mayor of the Municipality of Vieques, Hon. José A. Corcino Acevedo, notifies about his Executive Order # 1 It consists of the modification to the current Executive Order and that responds to everyone’s concern that visitors to our Island of Vieques are healthy from COVID-19 and can demonstrate it through a certificate with no more than 72 hours of such completion and as required to enter the International Airport. In this Executive Order, the Maritime Transportation Authority (ATM) is authorized to sell tickets up to 30% of the capacity of the vessels to visitors, when they present a negative proof which they must present at the time of purchasing the ticket. It is important to note that 40% of the Viequense population were successfully vaccinated and we continue to take steps to ensure that others can be vaccinated. If you have any doubts, questions or suggestions for the Mayor’s Office, do not hesitate to communicate through the necessary channels, including: through the official Facebook page, by calling the Mayor’s Office (787) 741-5000 or by email: municipio.vieques.alcaldia@gmail.com “- –
