Lockdown Details

Schools and universities remain closed for most year groups.

The government has introduced a range of restrictions to curtail the increase in COVID-19 cases. Effective 16 May 2021, a State of Emergency came into effect. A curfew is now in place from 9pm to 5am. Public gatherings are limited to groups of 5 people (10 for weddings and funerals). From 19 July, the government will ease certain restrictions permitting the food service sector to operate take-away services, drive-through and curb side pick-up. Restaurant in-room dining remains prohibited. Bars, cinemas, casinos and all non-essential retail continue to be closed. All places of worships, gyms, spas, hairdressers and clubs or theatres are closed. Beaches, rivers and public pools are also off-limits for members of the public. Outdoor sports or exercise in public places is now permitted in groups of 5 or less, however team-sports are not currently allowed. The public service is operating on an essential service basis only.

Supermarkets, pharmacies and other essential retail remain open under restricted operating hours.

The inter-island ferry service operating between Trinidad and Tobago has a reduced frequency of 25% and flights have been reduced to three per day for essential travel only (social distancing protocols in place). Public transport is also operating at 50% capacity.

The government of Trinidad and Tobago reviews these public health restrictions regularly.

Under the public health regulations of 31 August 2020, it is a legal requirement for all individuals aged 8 years and over to wear a mask in public spaces, including when travelling in private vehicles. Failure to do so attracts a fine. You should adhere to all precautionary measures put in place by the local authorities.
