Following the announcement that the temporary ban on amplified music will be lifted effective July 10th 2020 to July 31st 2020, The Royal St.Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force, during a press conference this morning announced new guidelines for mass gatherings.
There will be no more than 300 persons permitted for events that are held outdoors. Those who are organising these events will be required to administer temperature checks on all who enter, if a temperature above 101 degrees Fahrenheit, the organiser is asked to call the COVID-19 hotline and make a report.
As it pertains to indoor events all of the same protocols in place for outdoor gatherings will apply here as well with the major difference being that limit of persons allowed being 200 as opposed to 300 for outdoor gatherings.
The ban on amplified music was first implemented as a means of curbing the spread of COVID-19. As part of the new protocols it is being recommended that organisers of events ensure that there are sufficient sanitisation stations in place, patrons of these events are also being encouraged to wear masks when attending.
The public is further informed that permission will be granted in accordance with the stipulations spelt in section 17 of the Noise Act, Chapter 278 of the Revised Edition of the laws of St.Vincent and the Grenadines 2009.
