For the first time in a year, the streets of the BVI are being governed by no curfew.
Premier Andrew Fahie announced on Thursday that the current land-based curfew — which was in effect from 2 am to 5 am — has been lifted.
“I repeat, the land curfew has been lifted. The health and safety protocols, wearing of masks and sanitising of hands, remain in place,” Premier Fahie explained in a national address.
Regarding the sea, the curfew which starts at 10 pm nightly has been changed and will now begin after midnight at 12:30 am.
The Premier said this will further stimulate more economic activity on the sister islands.
As more residents take the COVID-19 vaccine, the government promises to reduce restrictions and further open the economy which has been battered by the pressures of the global health pandemic.
