At the start of the first relaxed day of the territory-wide curfew, things reflected ‘the new regular’ that Premier Fahie described in a recent public address.
The majority of residents who ventured outside their homes to access goods and services were clad in protective face masks, which is in compliance with government’s nationwide COVID-19 protocol.
Persons were seen flocking banks, supermarkets, pharmacies and other businesses as early as a few minutes past 7 o’clock Monday morning. The queues to access these establishments were on a noticeable smaller scale than what they were a few weeks ago when government assigned three days for the entire territory to shop.
Starting today (Monday, April 27), residents will have 14 days to conduct business, walk their pets, and exercise between 6 am to 1 pm daily. Government will then reassess and determine how to move after these first two weeks.
