Bayside Pool Party – Health Minister says regulations “speak to public spaces”


    Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh says he will speak to the Attorney General about a recent pool party at Bayside Towers.

    According to reports, more than five persons were present without masks, and only received a warning from police officers who responded to calls from residents.

    When asked about the incident today and why disciplinary action was not taken, Mr Deyalsingh said the public health ordinance regulations “speak to public spaces”.

    Mr Deyalsingh warns that while young people want to maintain their social lives, they need to be responsible given the ongoing pandemic, which he referred to as “our World War 2”.

    Meanwhile, TTPS Head of Legal Unit, Christian Chandler, echoed the sentiment regarding the regulations.

    Also commenting on the Bayside incident is Police Commissioner Gary Griffith who assured it is not a case of discrimination.
