Taumeasina Island Resort’s 4-Step Policy under Samoa’s Level 2 Restrictions


29 January 2022, Apia Samoa. The popular ‘home away from home’ Taumeasina Island Resort is open for business with a four-step process aligned with Level 2 conditions imposed under Samoa’s latest State of Emergency orders.

“We are open for business, and under the latest SOE orders, our management team have adopted four policies in particular here at Taumeasina Island Resort, that we have implemented since last night”.

As long as Alert Level 2 State of Emergency Order #65 is in place, Taumeasina Island Resort would like to inform their valued customers that in order to be permitted entry, everyone must adhere to the following four golden rules.

1. For all eligible adults and children 12-18 years, proof of full vaccination is required;
2. You must show proof that you have installed the Samoa Travel Tracer App;
3. You must pass a rapid infra-red temperature check; and
4. You gotta mask up, and wear your mask at all public indoor spaces around the resort, unless consuming food and beverages as in-house clients.

Last year, Taumeasina Island Resort was one of the first businesses to announce that all staff had been fully vaccinated. As Level 2 is embraced for the next two weeks in Samoa the TIR team  again remind customers that 100% of management and staff are double-dosed with AstraZeneca – fully vaccinated.

Taumeasina Island Resort General Manager, Tuiataga Nathan Bucknall says they commend the sacrifice and commitment of frontliners from various government organisations within the National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC) and Disaster Advisory Committee (DAC).

“Taumeasina Island Resort fully supports the efforts of the NEOC, DAC, Ministry of Health as well as the Samoa Tourism Authority, and we are all very appreciative of the efforts of these organisations and frontline workers in implementing policies to ensure the safety of our people during this time”.

The Samoa Travel Tracer App is a joint initiative between the Ministry of Health and Samoa Tourism Authority.  It can be downloaded for free from Apple Store of Google Play.
