No tickets issued for curfew breaches over holiday – police
A curfew imposed by the Government last week appears to have been adhered to, according to police.
The curfew – lasting from 12.30am until 5am – came into effect last week and will run until January 20.
The move – announced by health minister Kim Wilson in the wake of a fresh surge in Covid-19 cases – was condemned by some groups.
Bar and restaurant owners said it would harm business and one pressure group promised to organise a post-midnight motorcade in defiance of the public safety order.
That action never materialised after the police issued a reminder that anyone found in breach of the curfew would be ticketed and face a fine of up to $500.
Today a police spokesman said: “There were no tickets issued for curfew breaches over the holiday.”
He added: “The Bermuda Police Service is pleased that residents complied with curfew regulations over the Christmas holiday.
“We are hopeful this will again be the case during the New Year holiday observances and for the duration of this curfew period, as we work together to prevent the spread of this virus.”
