NODS ENCOURAGES SOCIAL DISTANCING
Monday 20th April 2020

The National Office of Disaster Services (NODS) is becoming increasingly concerned about the failure of residents to practice social distancing in the fight against the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

It has become noticeable that some individuals conducting business at various establishments are not adhering to the policy and are gathering in crowds while waiting to enter these businesses like banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions among others.

It is commendable to note that businesses have put social distancing measures in place on the inside and to some extent on the outside, however persons need to pay more attention to keeping their distance from each other.

As part of efforts to stem the spread of the Covid-19, health officials have been advising individuals to practice social distancing which means that persons should be at least 6 feet apart. Government has also made it mandatory for persons going outside to wear masks.

NODS is encouraging residents to adhere to the guidelines set by the authorities in order to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus in Antigua and Barbuda
