Marshall: State of emergency extended
The state of emergency for the COVID-19 pandemic in Barbados will continue until September 27.
This announcement was made by Attorney General Dale Marshall on Tuesday in the House of Assembly.
He said Government had decided to extend the date beyond August 31, when it was due to expire, because Parliament would be prorogued until mid-September.
Reminding that the state of emergency could only exist for six-month intervals, the Attorney General stated: “In the interest of the health and preservation of life and limb of Barbadians it is important that we keep this state of emergency in place.” (MB)
