Last surname used for access in Barbados' alphabetised COVID-19 plan
Created : 17 April 2020
Officially, it is the final surname in a person's name which counts when shopping or banking under the new alphabetised approach.
With some persons experiencing problems on their first day out to conduct business, a note of clarification has been issued.
The Government Information Service issued a release informing shoppers with double-barrelled or even triple-barrelled surnames on their picture identification are asked to use the last surname when conducting their business at supermarkets, hardware stores and banks.
For example, persons with the surname Blackman-Gollop, would use GOLLOP as the surname.
This new arrangement with using surnames at these businesses is part of the Emergency Management COVID-19 Curfew (No. 3) Directive, 2020.
