Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley was forced to retract an initial time frame placed for the opening and closing of food establishments across the country, a short while ago. Initially, while highlighting further efforts to contain the COVID-19 spread, the Prime Minister suggested that restaurants would be forced to close their establishments at a specified time. Later in the press briefing, he reiterated the Ministry of Health’s Tweet that ALL FOOD ESTABLISHMENTS WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL APRIL 30TH.

Prior to his error, the Prime Minister gave information on the time allowances made for all essential service providers.
