Uncle Sam urges public to heed PM’s warning about overcrowding beaches

There continues to be various reactions to the Prime Minister’s announcement yesterday of the reopening/partial reopening of some sectors of the economy.

The Prime Minister articulated that the Government is still very much aware of the serious health concerns that the Covid virus still poses to T&T.

Health officials have noted a decline in the number of positive cases locally however the death toll remains a matter of some concern.

The Ministry of Health said eight more people have tested positive for COVID-19, however, there have been no additional deaths.

In yesterday’s 4:00 pm update, the Ministry said these new patients will be processed for admission at the discretion of the CMOHs.

Following his announcement that beaches will be reopened from today, Dr. Keith Rowley gave a stern warning to beach goers to follow the Covid guidelines or risk having a shut down of the facilities again.

There is the expectation that beachgoers will flock to the nation’s beaches after a months-long hiatus.

Vendors at Maracas Beach are urging beachgoers to heed the Prime Minister’s warning and not crowd the beach if they want to avoid another lockdown of all the beaches across the country.

The owner of a Bake and Shark business at Maracas Beach, Uncle Sam and Sons, told TV6 on Sunday that while he was happy about the new development he still has concerns.

He was referring to the warning by the Prime Minister yesterday that beaches would be closed again if COVID guidelines are not followed.
