Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has announced that some of the COVID-19 measures can be relaxed as soon as Saturday, if Trinidad and Tobago’s citizens continue to comply with the measures currently in place. He did not specify which measures would be relaxed.
Speaking at the Ministry of Health’s virtual media conference, Rowley said that the country is currently on track to meet those goals but only if mask-wearing and other sanitation measures are maintained. Trinidad and Tobago had seen a recent spike in virus cases.
Going a step further to the completion of T&T’s second 28-day cycle on Oct. 11, Rowley revealed that if the country can maintain a daily case intake of 20, it may be able to participate in the CARICOM travel bubble.
So far, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Dominica, Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, Montserrat, St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia and Barbados have qualified to be part of the arrangement, but not all those countries have been operating.
