PM: “We are now treating with clusters” only groups of 10 now permitted to congregate

For the next 14 days the country will be reverted to allowing only 10 persons to congregate at a time.

This according to Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley during a COVID-19 Health Media update this afternoon at the Office of the Prime Minister.

Dr. Rowley said the number of persons permitted to be in a group was 25, and now will be reduced to 10.

Dr. Rowley said he will also instruct each Permanent Secretary at all Government offices to reduce the number of persons working at one time.

He said they can either use an alphabetical system to have workers come in or roster them according to the days of the week.

This will be done to reduce the number of persons in an office and to balance the level of risk of contracting  the Coronavirus.
