Police in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, on Thursday, announced the cancellation of all permits to play amplified music in public or private places.

The move is as result of the precautionary measures adopted by the government to treat with the spread of COVID-19.

The permits have been cancelled until further notice by authority vested in the Commissioner of Police under Section 17 of the Noise Act.

“Members of the public are further advised to adhere to the social distancing guidelines that have been issued by the Ministry of Health and the Environment. Please stay safe and act responsibly at all times,” the statement said. 

A number of major entertainment events have been cancelled in SVG in light of the deadly disease, one case of which has been recorded in the country.
