21 Day Alcohol Ban in St. Lucia

by Kevon Browne

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): In St. Lucia, in a surprising move by the Government, it was announced that liquor licenses are suspended as of Wednesday, January 20, 2021, prohibiting the sale and consumption of alcohol at supermarkets, gas stations, restaurants, and bars, and other licensed operators.

The liquor license suspension will continue for 21 days in an attempt to address the spread of COVID-19 in light of the significant rise in the number of active COVID-19 cases on the island.

The recommendations follow a National Emergency Management Advisory Committee (NEMAC)/Stakeholders meeting held on Tuesday, January 19, 2021, further decisions to address the upsurge in COVID-19 will be communicated to the public shortly.
