GENEVIEVE QUINTAL: Win hearts and minds to change behaviour as lockdown eases

It is inevitable that the national lockdown will be eased further before long. The government has been holding consultations this past week with various stakeholders about the country’s readiness to move to level 3 at the end of the month.
Measures are being discussed and put in place to ensure that this is done in a way that does not put people in unnecessary danger and at the same time gives the economy the breathing space it so sorely needs.
