NEOC GUIDELINES FOR 24-HOUR CURFEW
Thursday 2nd April 2020

The National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC) is issuing a number of guidelines that members of the public should follow during the 24-hour curfew period implemented on Thursday morning at 12:01am.

Throughout the curfew, only essential personnel and those authorized can move freely on the streets. These include police and security personnel, health workers, immigration and port workers and NODS staff among others.

However, provisions have been made for all other individuals, who do not fall within the essential services category to pick up groceries and medication from 7am to midday as supermarkets and pharmacies will be opened. Only two people are allowed in a private vehicle.

Arrangements are in place for those persons who have medical emergencies to seek care during the curfew. All government operated community clinics will be opened during the day while Medical Benefits Pharmacies in Clare Hall, Browne’s Avenue and Nevis Street will operate for drop offs and pick-ups from 8am to 11am..

Persons in possession of passes should only be conducting business and not be engaged in adventure or other unnecessary endeavours.

As it relates to the safety of residents in the fight against the spread of the Covid-19, there are a number of precautionary measures that should be taken.
For persons utilizing the public bus system, it is mandatory that masks are worn. Family members are also encouraged to use masks at home, practice social distancing and clean and sanitise their surroundings regularly.

It is advised that cloth masks should be washed regularly and ironed before re-using.

Persons should also be mindful of the need to clean their cellphones and other electronic devices regularly as these can transmit germs due to the constant use.
