Lifting of curfew brings job expansion, economic renewal

Dear Editor,
The nationwide curfew that has been in place since March 2020 to curb the spread of the coronavirus has been lifted as the country sees a decline in cases and an uptake in vaccination, this will also jumpstart economic activity and create more jobs as Guyana forges ahead into the future.
It is advisable that all citizens seek vaccination as it is now time to shift our focus from survival to co-existing with the disease.
We are not yet out of the woods and we must therefore continue to observe the COVID-19 protocols and rules, such as wearing face masks.
Vaccination remains the best defence against severe illness, hospitalisation, and death from COVID-19. All citizens who have not yet done so are encouraged to be vaccinated as soon as possible. This includes people who are eligible for booster shots.
This will be a huge relief to the hundreds of workers in the tourism and hospitality sector that have borne the brunt of the national lockdown.
We would like to thank President Irfaan Ali and the Government of Guyana for facilitating all aspects of vaccination and healthcare services in order to reach this stage as Guyana heads into a progressive era.
