This morning, Love News received information that the Roaring Creek Bridge would be closed to non-essential workers. This bridge, which has been under construction for months, was just opened to vehicles on March 20. However, due to the State of Emergency, persons crossing the bridge are subject to arrest by police. Today, we asked Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams, about this, and he stated that persons should already be refraining from travelling without purpose.
Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: “I saw a Facebook post while I was on the show and I have said that as soon as I were through from the show I was going to make some calls and see where that is concerned but just for the knowledge of the people that the State of Emergency Proclamation do prohibits the movement of people across districts and that movements are only supposed to be confined to essential workers and essential services and so technically speaking the bridge should be closed for non essential movements so we’ll see how that goes.”
According to the State of Emergency regulations, moving across district, city, town, village or community boundaries is restricted.
