PM: Be safe by observing protocols during Jounen Kweyol

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet is imploring Saint Lucians to adhere to the COVID-19 protocols during Jounen Kweyol.

In a video posted to Facebook the prime minister says, "We do have a community spread and it is going to require us to continue to practice proper protocols: wear your facemask, continue to practice social distancing and make sure you're hand-sanitizing at all times."

He continued: "This is very important as we're coming up to Jounen Kweyol and it means that the temptation to get out and start socializing more and maybe drop our guard a little bit it is going to be there but I'm asking all of us, reducing the crowd size from 100 to 50 or less, when you're having your home parties, please continue to practice proper protocols..."

Prime Minister Chastanet said that Saint Lucians should have fun but that we have to all protect one another.
