Prime Minister of St. Lucia, Allen Chastanet

(St. Lucia News Online) Prime Minister of St. Lucia, Allen Chastanet has reminded citizens that the country is still under a State of Emergency and that the partial shutdown remains in effect until April 26, 2020.

The daily curfew is in effect from 7 p.m. until 5 a.m.

“Though our efforts seem to be paying off, now is not the time to become complacent in the war against COVID-19. Remember that you should only leave home if you need to get food, medication or essential supplies,” Chastanet said on Facebook.

He also reminded citizens that during the 10-hour curfew, persons are not permitted to loiter, congregate in public or go out liming.

“Only businesses who have received permission to operate are allowed to do so. The police have the power to arrest persons who are non-compliant and those who violate these orders can face a fine, be arrested or both!” he said.
