The Ministry of Public Security today announced a relaxation of the 2 am curfew on bars and nightclubs but only for the holidays.
A statement from the ministry follows:
Consequent upon an inundation of requests from businesses and the general public seeking to fully enjoy the Christmas Season, the Ministry of Public Security wishes to announce that, in conjunction with the Guyana Police Force, it is seeking to relax the enforcement of the 2:00am business deadline for bars, night clubs and other places of entertainment previously announced by the Ministry.
It is a time for celebration and knowing the Guyanese spirit the Minister has seen the need for this relaxation. The period during which the deadline will not be in effect is from December 23, 2015 – January 1, 2015.
As of January 2, 2016, the aforementioned stipulated closing time will be back on stream.
The Ministry takes this opportunity to wish the citizens of Guyana Happy Holidays and to urge you to be particularly safety conscious during this busy season, especially on the roadways.
