The State of Emergency and Curfew will end on 23rd December, 2021.
Nevertheless, the retention of the established covid-19 protocols shall still govern.
The Central Board of Health (CBH) and Law Enforcement will monitor behaviours on the beach and at the bars and clubs should it appear that the rules are being disregarded.
The object is to ensure that there will be no spike in Covid cases after the Christmas Holidays.
There shall be no clustering, no consumption of liquor, no music and no picnicking on the beaches even after the state of emergency has been lifted.
It is anticipated that there will be an increase in the number of infections following the Christmas Holidays.
Therefore all citizens and residents are expected to display caution during the holiday season since they may become infected by unvaccinated people.
Everyone is encouraged to get the vaccine if they have not done so yet.
