Although he stated that the current restrictions in place will remain until October 11, the Prime Minister has hinted that some measures may be relaxed as early as next week.
Rowley, speaking at the Health Ministry’s media briefing on Saturday, said that while he was encouraged by the medical experts that TT’s daily infection statistics were improving, strict public health measures needed to be maintained to assist in getting the numbers down even further.
He said “By far and large, I would say we have done reasonably well in terms of managing our response.”
He said if citizens continue to comply with the regulations, the country may be in a position to lift some restrictions by October 3rd.
“We expect that when we meet next week that if we do not reverse our trend when we meet next week, we should be able to take a few decisions that would allow us to very cautiously step out and go back to some semblance of participation.”
He did not say which measures were likely to be relaxed.
