Social Distancing Will Be Enforced

Michael Peyrefitte

Social distancing is also here to stay and will be enforced. There are some exceptions to this rule and, according to Michael Peyrefitte; the limit of a hundred persons at an event will also be lifted when the S.O.E. expires on Tuesday. Peyrefitte stressed that in some instances where social distancing is not enforced, face masks need to be worn.


Michael Peyrefitte, Attorney General

“You don’t have to social distance if you are part of the same group of people swimming, or if you are playing sports, or if you attending church, or if you are at a restaurant, bar, casino, or a other similar establishment. Naturally you will be close to each other. If you are a person at a discotheque or a night club you can’t social distance. But for those that were not mentioned above, you have to wear a mask.”


Dorian Pakeman, Director, Government Press Office

“Are there any more limits as far is hundred people in a venue?”


Michael Peyrefitte

“No. So you can have a concert with five thousand people but everybody has to wear as mask.”
