Cabinet Agrees To Retain Curfew

The decision was made by Cabinet to retain the curfew, 8:00 pm each night until 5:00 am each morning. The restrictions placed on restaurants, allowing take-out only, will continue for two more weeks.

The closure of gyms, clubs and bars will continue for at least two more weeks, depending upon a reduction of the number of infected people reported each week; beaches remain restricted, 5:00 am to 5:00 pm daily, excluding Sundays when they close at 12;00.3.iii.

The CMO reported that late presentation of the sick to the Sir Lester Bird Medical Center is responsible for many of the deaths; had the patients presented themselves sooner, the likelihood of saving their lives is greater.
