The Ministry of Health, Wellness, and Elderly Affairs has urged Saint Lucians to protect their health and safety during the festive season.
The caution came amid a sharp upsurge in violent crime and road accidents.
“As we celebrate this season, let us ensure that our actions preserve health and safety,” Chief Medical Officer Dr. Sharon Belmar-George advised.
Belmar-George’s comments came in a statement on Friday in which members of the Ministry’s public health team shared health and safety messages with citizens.
