FROM midnight, there can be no public gatherings for entertainment or concerts; only ten people can attend weddings and funerals; public servants will revert to a rotation system for working from their offices; and places of worship are to operate at a 25 per cent capacity.
Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh made these announcements at the Health Ministry’s virtual press conference on Wednesday morning, in light of a large increase in covid19 cases.
Deyalsingh said the decision was made at a meeting on Wednesday morning with the Prime Minister, Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister Stuart Young, chief medical officer Dr Roshan Parasram, National Security Minister Fitzgerald Hinds and Thoracic Medical Director at the Caura Hospital Dr Michelle Trotman.
Hinds said he will be meeting with Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith after the press conference to discuss the new regulations and “to ensure the laws of Trinidad and Tobago in this regard are followed.”
These regulations will be in effect until May 16.
