ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- The curfew that runs from midnight to 5:00am in the Virgin Islands has been extended for another 14 days.

“This Order may be cited as the Imposition of a Curfew (No. 25) Order, 2020. (2) This Order shall come into force on the 30th day of July, 2020. 2. (1) For the purposes of controlling, suppressing or preventing the spread of COVID-19 and for the protection of all persons within the Territory, a curfew is hereby imposed from the date this Order comes into force until Thursday 13th August, 2020, between the hours of 12:00 midnight to 5:00 a.m. daily, subject to such conditions as stipulated in this Order,” a section of the Order stated.

The Government of the Virgin Islands has said it will do what is necessary to protect the people of the Virgin Islands from COVID-19.

      This shows just how powerless the people really are. There are no active cases and no reasons to believe there are any. The vast majority believe and support the lifting of curfew ,which is in place supposable for covid, yet a few men and women continue to keep us locked away and there’s nothing we can do about it.

        Where in the world are you in a hurry to go?

        From 12 to 5am you should be in your house sleeping anyway. So where do you need to between them times?

        As for travel, you feeling touristy? you want to go to a covid infested country to come back where? here? na.

        You go, you stay, don't come back.

        The problem with some people is that you dont know when you are being blessed, your glass is always half empty.

        Go long and get what you looking for.

    That cell phone provider Facebook Livestream that aired lastnight with a jam session proves why we are still under curfew.

    ABSOLUTELY NO SOCIAL DISTANCING!!!!!!!

    Go back and look...

    No masks
    People dapsing touching each other’s hands
    Packed together standing in the back
    Up in each other’s face

    Yet people want to complain when they lack any kind of responsible behaviour.

    The First 2 weeks. August 15 to 30th. 2 commercial flight a day only... One in the morning and one in the afternoon, just to accomodate regional Travel.....The Morning one is out of St Vincent....The Afternoon one is out of Antigua...Who so ever wants to come must have a 5 day old negative test.. and go through the normal airport protocol... Visitors must get prior travel entty approval and cannot permit to stay more than 14 days... If wishes to stay longer, they must apply for extention accompanied by a 2 days old covid test...Extention is not guaranteed, but must not exceed to weeks...One extention per visitor... My suggestion.. Open step by step.. this would be the first step.. every 2 weeks I will assest and make a second step..No rush...Then Septembrer 1st, I should be in a position to add tourist from Canada, England / Europe..With the same entry rules... keep that process in plasce...Mask in public place a must.. Rest tables.. must be 8ft apart, When seated the distace should be around 6ft. only family and lovers can dine at the same table... Bar Chairs must be 6ft apart..All cistomers must be hand santized before seating.. This is the responsibility of the owners and servers. I Will implement covid inspectors.. Going around checking, making sure businesses adhere to the rules.... We all will be living, working, doing well and staying safe and healthy....Time to open the borders. Using my plan..
