POLICE HAVE HAD TO DETAIN THOSE WHO REFUSE TO ABIDE BY THE STIPULATED PROTOCOLS.

The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force, in conjunction with the Ministry of Health and Wellness, wishes to remind all persons granted home quarantine by the Ministry of Health and Wellness, that they are to abide by the stipulations outlined upon approval of their requests. At no time, should anyone granted home quarantine be frequenting public locations, be in contact with members of the general public, or leave the confines of their premises.

It would appear that there have been instances of breaches of home quarantine, and as such, the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force has undertaken to assist the ministry with detaining individuals who refuse to abide by the provisions of home quarantine and escorting them to government quarantine facilities.



On Saturday, January 2, 2021, a female resident of Beausejour, Gros Islet, was detained by officers attached to the Gros Islet Police Station, after having been observed in public areas on several occasions.  She was accompanied to a government quarantine facility for monitoring.

Anyone found not adhering to the terms of home quarantine, upon a review by the Ministry of Health, will have their approval revoked and placed at a government quarantine facility at his or her own expense.

Anyone with information regarding possible breaches of the conditions of home quarantine is asked to call the nearest police station immediately. Thank you for your usual cooperation!
