There will be no fireworks display in Tobago to celebrate Independence Day.

Instead, Tobagonians can tune into the Chief Secretary’s Independence Day Special at 8.15 am on TTT, 9 am on Tobago Channel 5 and 10.30 am on CCN Tv6.

The Office of the Chief Secretary of the Tobago House of Assembly on Sunday indicated that the decision was taken with the safety of all in mind.

It said: “The OCS has given the present COVID-19 situation careful consideration and therefore took the decision to refrain from the usual Independence Day activities, in the interest of the safety of the residents and in keeping with the Government’s health protocols.

Further, Tobagonians were advised to follow all safety protocols as set out by the Ministry of Health and the Government.

The customary Independence Day fireworks display is also cancelled fro Trinidad.
