ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada, June 10, 2020 (CMC) – The Grenada government has announced the relaxation of the curfew hours that were put in place, as part of the measures to stem the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
It said until June 16, freedom of movement is now allowed, between the hours of 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. (local time) daily; and beaches will now be open for a 10-hour period, starting at 5.00 am.
“Businesses that have already been authorised to operate may do so until 7:00 p.m. daily,” the government wrote in a statement, adding that new establishments, permitted to operate as of Tuesday, include gyms and fitness centers, operators licensed under the Gaming Act, as well as food vendors and restaurants with in-dining services.
“These new establishments must adhere to a specific set of reopening protocols, and only after receiving authorization from the Ministry of Health,” the statement noted, adding they must also undergo an inspection by health officials to obtain their clearance certificate in order to operate.
Grenada is the latest Caribbean Community (CARICOM) country engaged in the re-opening of their local economies that were shut down in March, as a result of the virus.
The nation has reported 23 cases of the virus.
