An amendment to the Statutory Instrument governing the Covid-19 regulations has shortened the curfew by one hour. The amendment now reflects the curfew hours to be in effect on Sundays to Wednesdays, from ten p.m. to four a.m.; and on Thursdays to Saturdays, from midnight to four a.m. According to the Minister of Home Affairs, Kareem Musa, the government is concerned over the recent spike in Covid-19, but they are being vigilant as they continue to approve some relaxations.
Kareem Musa, Minister of Home Affairs: “We’ve had relaxation when it comes to sports, casinos, this sort of thing so we just have to really watch it closely as we move forward and ensure that we are continuing to strike that very importance balance.”
Reporter: So you say coming up we may have more relaxation but could we see any more restrictions being imposed due to the raise in numbers ?
Kareem Musa, Minister of Home Affairs: “I think the only restriction is the one that is currently being implemented by the Ministry of Education which I think is a very well advised decision to close schools this coming Friday. I think that might be the only restriction that is forthcoming at this time so I don’t expect any additional ones.”
The amendment to the curfew hours took effect on Saturday, June 12.
