Bars remain closed



Cabinet Notes


A representative group of bar owners will meet via zoom with Health Ministry officials and a sub-committee of Cabinet Ministers.


The officials will receive from the bar owners the safeguards which they will put in place in order to ensure that, should bars be granted permission to re-open, their proposed safeguards would protect employees and patrons from contracting and spreading the virus.


This will be a first step towards re-opening, not unlike what was done by restaurateurs.

  1. Minister Nicolas on ABS just said arrivals will ‘CONTINUE TO BE IN 2 COLUMNS’
    1. “people returning to island to live, mix with full society, work – will be subject to 7-DAYS quarantine with pcr test on day 5 (to be paid for) if neg released on day 7”
    2. Quote “of course tourists are NOT subject to the quarantine as they are staying in certified accommodation & using certified restaurants etc.”

    UK AstraZeneca interim data April 28, 2021 states transmission rates by HALF vaccinated people are 50% less than non-vaccinated.
    They extrapolate from this a marked upward % benefit in being FULLY vaccinated regarding transmission & are currently assessing this with people who have received both jabs.

    Nationals & Residents, please do not let this marginalization pass without vigorous push-back.

    Tourists & ‘specially approved people’ are all over the island in plenty places & with locals including members of civil service, business & government.

  2. Instead of letting the Bars owners coming up their plans in order to reopen. Why the Health Ministry does not draw up a plan that covers all Bars. Then follow up to see if they meet those requirements. Then give them the okay to reopened.

  3. Politicians have become scientists ,virologist, biologist and doctors in is this pandemic thats a dangerous thing making foolish decisions because of how they feel micro managing the experts ,and the some of the experts are puppets . It is embarrassing.
