Police Warn Against Carnival-Like Celebrations

PR – The Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) is reminding the general public that all Carnival activities for 2020 have been cancelled. 

The RGPF is appealing to persons to adhere to the Rules and Regulations that are in place to safeguard against the spread of COVID-19, in particular the wearing of masks, physical distancing and practicing effective personal hygiene. 

We are also appealing to the general public to cooperate with the police and refrain from playing jab-jab and engaging in carnival-like activities, all of which are illegal at this time. 

While the RGPF has chosen the path of dialogue and forbearance, we are prepared to enforce the laws, if needs be. Persons who are engaging themselves in carnival-like celebrations are urged to cease and desist from doing so. 

Persons are also reminded that Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th August, 2020 are normal working days.
