The Grenada Trades Union Council (GTUC), wishes to advise the general public of the postponement of its Rhum Runner 1 cruise, carded for tonight, Friday March 13, 2020.
As a responsible organisation, the GTUC had to make this decision in light of the threat of the Corona Virus to the State of Grenada based on a pronouncement made by Minister for Health Hon. Nickolas Steele, at a Stakeholder meeting yesterday, that it is highly likely it was only a matter of time before Grenada records its first case, based on regional patterns.
On Wednesday March 11, the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared COVID–19 to be a pandemic, pushing the threat beyond the global emergency it had announced in January.
All ticket holders are advised to retain their tickets, as they will remain valid for a new date to be determined.
We anticipate your kind understanding and support as work together in the interest of safeguarding public health and safety. We urge all persons to take necessary precautionary measures and to follow official guidelines as we prepare to battle COVID–19.
