NCTF announcements following virtual meeting

The National COVID-19 Task Force (NCTF) today held its weekly statutory virtual meeting. Among the decisions taken was the approval of the request from CARICOM for officials to travel to Guyana on Thursday, April 30th for the purposes of overseeing the recount of ballots by the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM).

The NCTF also deliberated on the issue of the post-May 3rd measures and requests for charter flights for persons who are stranded overseas to return to Guyana. No final decision was taken on either matter, both of which require further deliberations.



COVID-19 Alert!

It also spreads when a person touches a surface or object that has the virus on it, then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth. We urge citizens to practice good hygiene and social or physical distancing also adhere to the guidelines provided by the Ministry of Health, Guyana.
