Grenada won’t ease virus curfew

Regional 01 Feb, 2021 Follow News

Grenada has the virus under control for now

Grenada will not lift its 10pm-5am covid curfew after a spike in COVID-19 cases in neighbouring islands. The measure will remain in place for at least the next two weeks.

The decision was based on increasing active COVID-19 cases in St Vincent, where there are now more than 600; Barbados, which has over 800; and St Lucia, which is dealing with around 400.

“Our health system, its strength and its weaknesses are no different from theirs and, as such, we need to recognise that right now the threat of COVID-19 to Grenada has never been greater from outside of Grenada,” said Health Minister Nickolas Steele, adding that while the country’s health system and border control have been strengthened, they are not fool-proof.

Steele said while there are no active community or cluster cases in Grenada, the government has to be cautious.
