PM Rowley: Schools to remain closed

Schools will remain closed, as Government continues to implement measures in its fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley made the announcement while speaking at a media conference on Monday.

School was scheduled to reopen on April 20, however, the Prime Minister said a new date will be determined soon.

"It automatically means now, that schools will not reopen on April 20, not at least by April 30. Some time after today, the Education Ministry and their clientele will know what possible day that opening will take place. And also the SEA exam which we thought would have taken place in May, that now has to be reassessed to see whether another time can be had and what that time could be," he said.

On Monday, the Prime Minister announced that the Stay at home initiative will be extended until April 30.

All restaurants are also closed until April 30.

He said Government will move to intensify the measures in place.

Trinidad and Tobago currently has 105 positive COVID-19 cases and eight deaths.
