PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC)— Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley says the borders of the twin-island republic will remain closed as long as health requirements related to COVID-19 remain in place.
Speaking during a media conference in Tobago on Saturday, the prime minister said while some Caribbean countries have started to reopen their borders, his administration is determined to take a cautious approach.
It’s meant to keep the virus out, and the virus travels by way of people.
As it relates to travel exemptions, the prime minister added that priority will be given to those citizens who left temporarily to work abroad or receive medical treatment.
The details were released by the prime minister, who also said that educational institutions will only be allowed to reopen for the purposes of examinations.
