As of June 1, all businesses with approved safety protocols in place to prevent a second wave of the coronavirus can resume operations says Cabinet.
“Given that government sees the benefit in rebuilding the economy and restoring normal economic activity, as of June 1 we will lift the remaining restrictions on all other businesses,” Information Minister Melford Nicholas told a virtual press conference.
Business owners are encouraged to submit their own proposals for ensuring social distancing and thorough hygiene practices to the Ministry of Health. These will be considered alongside recommendations from regional health body PAHO to devise the “best fit” to move forward.
Even though businesses will reopen, residents are reminded that the current 9pm to 5am curfew will remain in place.
