Grenada’s state of emergency may be extended until November 2021.
The existing orders are scheduled to expire on July 14, but members of the Lower House of Parliament and the House of Representatives will meet on May 21 to vote on the proposed extension.
Current restrictions include:
- Curfew from midnight to 4am
- Citizens are required to wear face masks when in public
- Businesses must close/ stop operations at 10pm
- Social gatherings aren’t allowed without permission from the relevant authorities
- Funerals and weddings are allowed a maximum of 20 guests
The COVID-19 Committee and the police have the authority to grant special permission to individuals or entities wishing to have a one-off event that falls beyond the parameters of the regulations.
Superintendent Vannie Curwen, the officer tasked with leading the Community Relations Department of the Grenada Police Force, said they will be ramping up efforts to enforce all COVID-19 regulations.
Police have the authority to issue tickets for violations. To date, Grenada has recorded 161 cases of COVID-19. The first case was diagnosed in March last year.
