This was confirmed by a source at the scene earlier this morning. Protestors are preventing persons and vehicles from crossing the bridge.
Today’s protest follows the implementation of the restrictions on unvaccinated persons by hospitals in the region. On Monday and Tuesday, staff of the Linden Hospital Complex were barred from entering the establishment after they could not produce proof of COVID-19 vaccinations.
Unvaccinated persons who wanted access to the hospital services were also not permitted to enter the compound.
