Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley is scheduled to address the media on Saturday 24th October, 2020 at 2pm from Tobago, and he is highly expected to speak on possibly altering the Public Health Ordinance Regulations for COVID-19.
Almost two weeks ago at a similar conference, the PM promised to state by October 24th what measures the Government is going to relax or take, depending on the COVID-19 situation leading up to that time.
Among the measures he said could possibly be relaxed if the infection rate was kept low, was the relaxing of restrictions for bars, restaurants and places of worship.
Currently, there is also the restriction of 10 persons or less per gathering in a public space, with 20 or less for funerals. It is yet to be seen if this would be altered.
Earlier this week, CMO Dr. Roshan Parasram said the reopening of the economy and easing of health regulations can only occur if persons continue to follow the COVID-19 protocols in place.
