Acting Governor Rosalie Adams has ordered that the ongoing curfew in the British Virgin Islands be extended.

She said the current curfew will continue until mid-November.

“For the purposes of maintaining or restoring peace and public order or the protection of the rights and freedoms of other persons, a curfew is hereby imposed between the hours of 11pm and 6am from the 3rd day of November, 2017 to the 16th day of November, 2017,” said Acting Governor Adams in government’s Gazette yesterday.

The curfew does not apply to essential service workers, officers in private security, or Customs and Immigration officers; if they are on duty.

The acting governor made the announcement days after US Virgin Islands Governor Kenneth Mapp, lifted the curfew in that territory.

Adams, in the meantime, has been acting as Governor since last week when Governor Augustus Jaspert departed for the UK on official business.
