Restaurants to resume in-house dining with immediate effect


CABINET NOTES: The Cabinet, following intense discussions among members and in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer, decided to allow restaurants to resume sit-down dining effective immediately.

The curfew hours will remain at 8:00 pm to 5:00 am; however, the Cabinet intends to review (next week) the numbers of people being infected and hospitalized daily by Covid-19.

If the numbers decline further, the Cabinet will determine whether to extend the curfew to a later hour.

The object is to enable those workers in restaurants to return to their jobs and to begin earning an income once more.

During delivery and pick-up service, many restaurants furloughed staff and others actually closed shut their doors.

Gyms, bars and other places of entertainment will be considered in due course.

  1. The caring nature of our PM at times makes me want to give him the attributes of omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. However as he is only human I will humbly describe him as thoughtful. Thank you sir for your kind consideration.

    • Yes, our Prime Minister is a very thoughtful man, a very caring man with values and principles that are to be admired. Yes, thank you sir for your true love for the common people, in the tradition of V.C. Bird and our founding fathers and mothers. You are in our prayers.

    • JUST SAYING your comment is so very sacrilegious. It is shameful. The words omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent is only used to describe God. You disclaimer that Gaston is human so you will not ascribe those attributes to him does not excuse your stupidity. I know to many of you guys Gaston is a Godlike figure but please you have taken your nonsense and stupidity too far.

    • @Just Saying: I think you had too much to drink today.That Red Kool Aid could be a curse.It could also addled your brain.Perhaps that has happen to you today.

  2. Restaurants will be relieved for this news but likely need clarification:
    ? Reduced distanced numbers or full capacity
    ? Must eat substantial food or just a snack & drinks
    And we are all curious:
    ? # covid cases in msjmc/IDC has not been public since Slimline dashboard
    ? #cases miraculously have dropped often into single digits since Slimline dash – any math massage happening

    Remain alert people! Mask, DISTANCE, sanitize!
    We have 25% of population partially vaccinated at present…and visitors, possibly with variants, are still free to roam.

    • I concur… what principles and values?? ANU PM we talking bout here?? Y’all really some toilet paper round here boy 😂😂😂😂 At least they gave me a good mid morning laugh because I almost passed out at the first two comments 😂😂
