Residents of the island are to stay indoors from 10pm tonight until 8am on Tuesday.

That instruction comes from the Hon Minister for Health, Dr Irving McIntyre moments ago.

He said, “…Unless the Minister by order published in the Gazette extends this.”

Update: The full statement from the Minister also reveals that rapid testing is being utilised and 118 were executed in Deliver and LaRoche, the district where the first case has resulted in 9 other positive tests and at least two dozen under observation.

Hon McIntyre also outlined legislative amendments expected to further empower authorities to enforce restrictions.
