Basseterre,St.Kitts May 22 2020 (SKNVIBES)
I address you today to announce new Regulations to come into force in our continuing fight against COVID-19. The current Regulations, No. 16 under the Emergency Powers Act, come to an end tomorrow, Saturday 23rd May, and further Regulations for the next three weeks, from Saturday 23rd May to Saturday 13th June, will be published under SR&O No. 19 of 2020.
I am very pleased to hear that our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Hazel Laws, announced earlier this week that the last of fifteen (15) individuals who were confirmed as having contracted COVID-19 is now fully recovered. It was on the 25th of March, some 58 days ago, that we in St. Kitts and Nevis were informed that two of our citizens had returned from a short visit to New York with the Coronavirus Disease.
7 DAYS NOW OF LIMITED OPERATIONS
The new Regulations to take effect tomorrow will continue the process of gradually opening up our Federation to more economic and social activity. This weekend, on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th May, we have put in place an extension of the days of limited operations to the seven-day week. It will be the end of the 24-hour curfew (a total lockdown).
