Good morning, with the increase of covid19 cases, the police is going to be stricter with the enforcement of the mask and social distancing laws. I cannot understand how comes we are a society that is so afraid of covid but yet many don't want to follow the protective measures put in place. I urge all to avoid any issue with the police to please wear your mask and wear it properly, covering your mouth and nose. Whenever you are in any gathering you must also practice social distance of 6 feet apart. We will be paying keen attention to those outdoors and indoors parties. This includes night clubs and bars. Where persons are found not complying with the law we will arrest and close down the function.

We ask for the support of all to continue the fight against this virus. If we are to be successful we all must play our part. The security forces and the Ministry of Health alone cannot do it.

We need a law that is going to make it an offense for any establishment owner, boat and bus operator to allow anyone on their premises, boat or bus without a mask and or not practicing social distancing. Once this is done they will ensure that persons on their establishment, boat or bus comply with the law. The penalty should be taking away their operators permit.

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police
