ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Minister for Health and Social Development, Hon Carvin Malone (AL) will host another virtual COVID-19 announcement this morning, September 16, 2020, at 10:00am, as the Territory enters its new 5:00pm to 5:00am curfew for the next 14 days.

The new curfew order has been imposed by the National Security Council, based on Cabinet recommendations, and comes at a time when the government has started stimulus payouts to over 1000 businesses as an economic booster.

Relaxing of the previous 1:00pm start of curfew to 5:00pm also allows for several businesses to open and serve during regular business hours, thus paving the way for full-time workers to resume employment. 

However, businesses have been warned that opening is subject to inspection and certification by the Social Distancing Monitoring Task Force and the Environmental Health Division.

The update will be live-streamed on the Facebook page of the Government of the Virgin Islands, and broadcast on Flow TV, CBN TV Channel 101, CBN 90.9 FM and ZBVI 780 AM

    What is the purpose of your show? Your show is boring, a Community Activist should speak out on everything that is affecting Communities be it good or bad. You only seem to use your platform to bash the Government. Use your platform to bash the killings and the bad behavior towards each other. I always said and I will continue to say, K..... P... would be a better host for C.. D...

      @cut deep exactly! Never used her voice for anything meaningful. She repeats the same issues in a different way. What happened is that she’s built herself to be like a Ballistic pig and even if she wants to be nice she can’t caused of the image she already built on herself. Her followers I’m sure are people who don’t add to BVI value. K.shma P.. Would be a better host her C.....D
