Over the past week, Officers of the City Constabulary Department have arrested 41 persons for allegedly breaching the 6am to 6pm curfew.

The Mayor and City Council (M&CC) on Friday said, via its Facebook page, that these persons were placed on $10,000. station bail each, and are expected to appear in court to answer the charges next week.

The M&CC also recently announced that it was stepping up efforts to ensure that both shoppers and vendors comply with the necessary measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

A few days ago, fifty-one (51) vendors, who were found operating without a face mask, were fined $5000. each.  These vendors were found operating at Albouystown, Stabroek, and Bourda markets.

“The Mayor and Councillors of the City of Georgetown implores all citizens to observe the COVID-19, precautionary guidelines set out by the Ministry of Public Health. We have to work together to beat COVID-19,” the M&CC had said.
