Minister Byron-Nisbett Calls For Changed Behaviour Coming Out Of 24-hour Lockdown
Additionally, she encouraged the general public to adopt the measures even at home.
“Practice proper hand hygiene; if you touch a high-touched area at home, make sure to sanitize/wash your hands before you touch your face, eat or touch others. Practice social distancing, even if it means doing drills at home to stay 6 feet or for persons who live close to neighbours, maintaining that distance when speaking over the fence,” she said.
“I am hopeful, however, and I have faith in our people of this Federation, that coming out of this current two (2) weeks lockdown, we would not have a need for any further lockdowns or curfews because we would all have a better understanding of the power we all have in our hands to end this pandemic by following the necessary non-pharmaceutical measures, as well as stepping forward and accepting the pharmaceutical measure, that is vaccines,” said Minister Byron-Nisbett. Minister Byron-Nisbett said it is important to have all hands on board in order to achieve success. She implored everyone to work together to fight the common enemy, COVID-19, and echoed her confidence in everyone working together to help flatten the curve and get back to some form of normalcy.
