Government’s Chief of Staff Lionel ‘Max’ Hurst is reminding members of the public that under the current COVID-19 rules, public gatherings should not exceed 25 people.
Hurst was responding to Sunday’s car show at Ffryes Beach, which attracted scores of people — many of them without face masks and breaching the social-distance protocols.
A video making the rounds on social media shows the function – with what sounds like amplified music playing – and dozens of cars parked on either side of the access road.
“The rule is clear, no more than 25 people are to gather in any one public space at the same time,” Hurst said on Wednesday.
“That’s what the authority of the State of Emergency gives to the Cabinet.
“When all those people gather up in one place the probability of spreading the disease is greater than if you stay in your home and you don’t have contact with that many people.”
