Martinique has also ended its mandatory mask requirement, capacity limits in public venues and its “sanitary pass,” which required proof of vaccination to enter public establishments. 

In a statement, Martinique Tourism Commissioner Bénédicte di Geronimo said she was “very pleased with this good news.”
