The Holy Month of Ramadan will begin on April 24th and end on May 23rd. Muslims are however expected to observe all social distancing restrictions during this time of COVID-19 fear. Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh today said he addressed this matter with the Muslim community, even before the implementation of strict restrictions in Trinidad and Tobago, and even before the very first death had been recorded in this country.

The Minister had been speaking during Tuesday’s virtual media conference. He said he has no doubt that members of the Muslim community, like other religious factions, will continue to observe the restrictive measures aimed at keeping everyone safe.
