Carnival 2023 marks the first major celebration of our national festival since the COVID-19 pandemic. As we celebrate, let’s all be our brothers’ keepers and watch out for one another. Please take heed of the safety guidelines listed by the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service. These include:
• Wear minimal jewellery
• Travel in groups to and from activities
• Do not carry large amounts of cash
• Do not accept drinks from strangers or leave drinks unattended
• Designate an alcohol-free driver to and from events
Also, remember that COVID-19 is still with us, so please take all necessary steps to protect yourself as advised by the Ministry of Health.
Let’s all have a wonderful and safe Carnival 2023, T&T!
