THE WEDDING: On Valentine's Day Soca star Machel Montano tied the knot and wed, Renee Butcher, at the Red House in Port of Spain under Christian rites, something different from other ceremonies held at the Red House, which are mainly done by the Registrar General.

The wedding ceremony continued at “Machel Monday” when Montano exchanged wedding vows with his bride Renee, in front thousands of his fans on Monday 17, February at the Hasely Crawford Stadium where everyone were urged to wear white at the soca star’s final concert, themed “The Wedding”.

The vow exchange was captured by Express Webmaster ANDREW MANSWELL who attended the concert. #MM #MachelMonday #TheWedding #trinidadexpress


The current shutdown of non-essen­tial businesses and other restrictions to limit the spread of COVID-19 can “possibly” be exten­ded beyond April 15.

So said Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley yesterday as he lamented that Trinidad and Tobago’s COVID-19 situation is expected to wor­sen in the coming weeks.

BARS, private members clubs, ­casinos, gaming and betting facilities and cinemas will remain closed until April 30.

This according to a new Regulation—The Public Health Novel Coronavirus No 7 Regulation, which was released yesterday and which extends the prohibition on certain activities from April 15 to April 30.

AT least four people born in Trinidad and Tobago have died from complications relating to coronavirus disease COVID-19 in New York, a US state now considered the global epicentre of the pandemic.

WALKING to the grocery, fast food outlet or work is fine, but sitting down in public just watching the world go by will result in a stern talking to by the police and they will not leave until you get up.

PEOPLE who have the COVID-19 coronavirus can die if they wait too long to seek help and their symptoms worsen, says Chief Medical Officer Dr Roshan Parasram.
