    curfew isn’t going to do anything if there is no reinforcement of mask wearing. How many have been fined so far, how many businesses closed for not following covid guidelines? The reality is some time somewhere it will get in to our community and if we aren’t wearing masks its going to spread fast. Its a fact

    Pure and utter nonsense. 3 hours curfew serves what purpose.

    Advise to the Government… remove the curfew, reopen the borders, ease the restrictions placed on foreigners, bring in a few franchise and foreign investors… all geared towards sparking economic recovery and growth.

    These cats need to explain what is the reason for this curfew. It has no basis in any kind of science.

    Foolishness and a waste of time. Government needs to get their priorities in order. What’s the sense in having a 3 hour curfew? I Really don’t understand these guys.
