No Spicemas but events still on

Grenadians may enjoy cultural events in August

Grenada may not be staging its renowned Spicemas Carnival for a second year because of the global pandemic, but the government has approved private promoters hosting cultural events instead.

Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell announced that the government won’t allow promoters to organise mass social events until Grenada reaches herd immunity. He said that the reason for allowing smaller cultural events is so that people can de-stress after being confined indoors due to the ban on social activities. However, Mitchell insisted that participation is based on the condition that enough people get vaccinated ahead of the events in August.

Of the 161 people who have contracted COVID-19 in Grenada since their first case in March 2020, there have been 160 recoveries and only one death.
