St. Vincent & Grenadines: $100 fine for breaking mask law; $500 for mass gathering

The law mandating the wearing of face masks in certain places in St. Vincent and the Grenadines came into effect on Saturday with the publication of Statutory Rule and Order No. 4 of 2021.

The legislation, which will remain in effect for one month, imposes an EC$100 ticket on persons who are found to be in violation.

The rules also imposes an EC$500 fine on persons who violate the mass gathering limitations.

“If you pay by a ticket, it is cheaper than if you go to the court,” Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves said on WE FM on Sunday.

A person who violates the mask-wearing or indoor dining rules, or who rides in or drives a public service vehicle without wearing a mask will be issued an EC$100 ticket for each of those offences.
