New COVID Directive takes effect April 12
Following is a statement from the Prime Minister’s office regarding the new COVID-19 Directive.
“During yesterday evening’s Press conference, Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley inadvertently stated that the new COVID-19 Directive, which further relaxes measures that were implemented to contain the spread of the virus, will take effect from April 11, 2021.
“In fact, the new Directive (No. 8), which will be available to the public shortly, takes effect from Monday, April 12, 2021, as the current Directive (No. 7) expires at midnight on Sunday, April 11, 2021.
Therefore, the public is advised that they should continue to observe all protocols contained in the current Directive until Midnight Sunday. This means that for churches, the current limits will remain in place this coming Sunday.
“The Prime Minister’s Office apologises for any inconvenience this error might have caused.” (PR)
