Nine P.M. Curfew Extended Through November

A new statutory instrument has come into force, including an extension of the nightly nine o’clock curfew for the entire month of November.  A few weeks ago, Prime Minister John Briceño indicated that there would have been a relaxation of the existing regulations were there to have been a significant decline in the daily positivity rates pertaining to new COVID infections.  Unfortunately, we were unable to achieve the target that was set by the Ministry of Health and Wellness and earlier today, a new S.I. was introduced that maintains several of those regulations.  After several weeks of total lockdown, casinos are once again allowed to operate at fifty percent capacity, providing that all employees are immunized.  Only patrons that are fully vaccinated, those who are able to present COVID vaccination cards, will also be allowed to enter casinos or other gaming establishments.  While S.I. One Thirty Six of 2021 does not mention anything about church attendance, we note that government has walked back on its initial position, allowing for unvaccinated congregants to also attend services.
