Restaurants to resume sit-down service

The Cabinet, following intense discussions among members and in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer, decided to allow restaurants to resume sit-down dining effective immediately. The curfew hours will remain at 8:00 pm to 5:00 am; however, the Cabinet intends to review (next week) the numbers of people being infected and hospitalized daily by Covid-19. If the numbers decline further, the Cabinet will determine whether to extend the curfew to a later hour. The object is to enable those workers in restaurants to return to their jobs and to begin earning an income once more. During delivery and pick-up service, many restaurants furloughed staff and others actually closed shut their doors.Gyms, bars and other places of entertainment will be considered in due course.
