Acting Director General, Office real viagra pharmacy prescription of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management ODPEM, Richard Thompson, says islandwide shelter preparation activities got under way last year in readiness for the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to November 30.

He pointed out that a multisectoral approach to shelter management has been taken in light of COVID-19, and noted that COVID-19 shelter adjustments include a 50 per cent reduction in the capacity of shelters across the island to better adhere to physical distancing protocols.

Mr. Thompson said special consideration is being given to health and safety protocols in each shelter and that persons will be screened prior to entering the shelter.
