A resolution by the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) to approve a resolution adopted by the National Assembly on April 17, 2020, to extend the state of emergency to combat the threat of COVID-19 to St. Christopher and Nevis for up to six months effective April 18, received safe passage at an emergency sitting of the Nevis Island Assembly on April 18, 2020.
In his presentation, Hon. Mark Brantley, Premier of Nevis who brought the resolution, stated that the move was necessary to provide the legal underpinning to implement the continuation of the state of emergency in Nevis.“We are doing all that we can to respond to an unprecedented threat. Something you or I nor anyone in this room has ever seen before, and the unprecedented nature of the threat means there is no play book.
