Barbados’ Government initiates “Stage 2” of its National Preparedness Plan for COVID-19.
The recommendation now coming from the Government of Barbados, and from public health officials, is that we limit the gathering of persons to no more than 25 persons. This is recreational gatherings and gatherings in relation to non-essential services. The expectation of the Government of Barbados is that they are essential services that will still need to continue; people will still need to go to work; people will still need to conduct the businesses that are related to delivering essential services to the people of Barbados.
