Restrictions on religious services could be lifted by September 6

Although the vaccination figures for the month of August have been slower than anticipated, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley is hoping that things do improve and that the covid19 numbers continue to be stable, in order for in-person religious services to resume by September 6.

However, while speaking at today’s press conference at the Diplomatic Centre in St Ann’s, Rowley said the effects on the population of the removal of restrictions on the retail industry on August 16 would first be evaluated.

He said, “If at the end of that week when we finish assessing the retail trade coming out, we are still in the same or similar kind of situation that we are in today, when we do that next week, we are hoping then to give some relief to the national population with respect to the participation in religious and other ecclesiastical services.”
