Barbados Curfew Restrictions To Be Lifted From 30 June

(Barbados Government Information Service Press Release) With the positivity rate for COVID-19 cases continuing to fall and the need to jump-start economic activity and create more jobs, Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley has announced the removal of curfew restrictions from June 30.

Speaking during a wide-ranging address to the nation (on 19 June), the Prime Minister disclosed that Government had met and reflected on the COVID-19 situation and decided that the current protocols slated to end on June 29, would be “removed from the landscape of this nation”.

“Hopefully, we won’t have to see it (curfew) again, but that is up to all of us. I cannot promise you that we would not apply brakes if we have problems. But on the current trajectory of the last 90 days, we anticipate that as long as we continue to behave as we have been behaving, then they would be no reason to reintroduce it,” Ms. Mottley assured.

The Prime Minister also announced that there would be an ease for the entertainment sector. She said based on meetings with the sector, Government was willing to “take a chance as it relates to certain types of activities”.
