Slight Relaxation of Curfew Hours Depends on Positivity Rates

According to Dr. Sabido, there will be a slight relaxing of the nightly curfew, but only if the daily positivity rate decreases by November first.

 

Dr. Julio Sabido, Ministry of Health & Wellness

“Churches are allowed to open and to open with fifty percent seating capacity, fully vaccinated and observing all public health measures.  Pastors are to be made responsible for the adherence of these public health measures and they can be fined for the first offense and closure for repeated offense.  Casinos are to remain closed.  Competitive sports are to be allowed with fully vaccinated persons only and this will come into effect on October 20th, 2021.  BPOs are to operate at fifty percent of staff and with staff who are fully vaccinated.  We have provided for penalties for owners of public transportation who violate public health measures, including fines and cancellation of licenses and the no-movement Sundays have been lifted.  Providing that the positivity rate improves and the indicator will be between five and ten percent, come November first to November thirtieth, the curfew should move back to ten p.m.; will start at ten p.m. and end at four a.m.  Churches will remain as stated before, casinos will be allowed to open at fifty percent capacity but only for fully vaccinated people.  This is to be enforced by the proprietor and random checks by the COVID Enforcement Unit.”
