They also made 30 arrests in connection with business sector breaches of COVID-19 protocols.

In addition, the police are concerned that some business places are closing exactly at 9.00 pm.

Assistant Police Commissioner, Dr. Mashama Sealy, told NTN that as a result, there are hundreds of vehicles on the road after that hour.

However, Sealy noted that it’s after the curfew time.

Therefore, she urged businesses to close in time so that their workers and others can get home before the 9.00 pm curfew.

Sealy explained that the objective is to have individuals observe the COVID-19 protocols and ensure that everyone is safe.
