Barbados PM announces revised protocols to slow spread of virus
(Barbados Government Information Service) Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley has announced new changes to the directives to slow down the spread of COVID-19 in Barbados, during her address to the nation from Ilaro Court, this afternoon.
Those changes will come into effect from Saturday, September 11.
Ms. Mottley said that the curfew would start from 9:00 p.m. and end at 5:00 a.m., Mondays to Saturdays, and on Sundays, the curfew will begin at 6:00 p.m. and end at 5:00 a.m.
She continued: “We’re asking persons to adhere to those things. There is one exception. We recognise that restaurants are back in business; we’re asking people to go for early suppers. The restaurants can stay and serve up until about 8:30 p.m. for those who live half hour away, or 15 minutes away, but we are giving what is otherwise known as an extended pass or laissez-passer to those restaurant workers, so that they can get home…. They will be allowed to be on the road until 11 p.m., when the curfew finishes at nine, and until 8:00 p.m., when the curfew finishes at 6:00.”
