The Grenada government has imposed no movement days as well as a daily curfew until Sept. 20 as the island battles with an upsurge in cases of COVID-19 that has killed four people in as many days and infected many others.
Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell made the announcement in a radio and television broadcast on Friday. He said: “Tonight, I extend deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased. I pray that the Lord strengthens you in your time of grief.” He urged people to behave responsibly and follow all protocols.
Mitchell said effective Saturday, the curfew was effective until Monday, Sept. 6 from 7pm-5am and that from Friday, Sept. 10 to Monday, Sept. 13 as well as Sept. 17 to Sept. 20.
Mitchell also announced that there would be no inter-island travel between Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique during the curfew period.
