Michael Peyrefitte

While those three areas remain under strict quarantine, a State of Emergency has been announced for the rest of the country. As announced by Prime Minister Dean Barrow on Thursday, a curfew is now in place and several establishments are not allowed to open. The Attorney General explains.

“So tomorrow night and Saturday night by twelve o’clock make sure you are home and not a public place and public space. The only people who will be allowed after the curfew are the same people. This show name Ask the Experts the public should be the experts because it is the same thing that we are going over again. This is like we are riding a bike. So if you get caught during the curfew hours you will be arrested and charge for violating the curfew. The exception is the customs, police, B.D.F., coast guard, people who are on duty. There is more room other than the lock down areas. For the rest of the country twenty five can gather in a place. Discotheque, bars, rum shops, night club shall be closed for the next fourteen days. If you are a restaurant you will be allowed to open as a restaurant only. If you have a publican license you have to open as a restaurant only but unlike the lockdown areas, you can actually go in to a restaurant and dine in restaurant but remember no more than twenty five people can be in the restaurant at the same time.”
