Grenada lifts their COVID-19 curfew

Grenada today announced the lifting of the curfew that had been put in place to stem the spread of COVID-19, even as it said that citizens will have to comply with updated emergency powers regulations regarding congregation and the free movement of people.

Now Grenada reported that the updated regulation provides for the free movement of citizens from 11:59 pm on July 14, as part of the weekly strategy implemented by the government since the island declared a state of emergency in March.

In April, Parliament approved for the state of emergency to be extended for no more than six months.

Despite the lifting of the curfew, the regulation states that only businesses that are approved to operate will be allowed to open and everyone, once in the public must practice the physical distancing protocol and wear a mask or other face covering.
