The order signed by the prime minister restricts movement
An amendment has been made to the Emergency Powers COVID 19, restricting exercise to yards and immediate neighborhoods only.
In the revised Prime Minister’s Emergency Powers, the new measure signed Thursday, now prohibits a person from driving to a place to exercise.
In his national address on Monday, Dr. Hubert Minnis, in implementing the 24 hour curfew, said outdoor exercise was allowed for 90 minutes a day, whether alone or together with family members living under the same roof, between the hours of 5:00 a.m. to 9 p.m, provided that such person at all times maintains a distance of six feet from another person.
Now all of that has changed with the prime minister tightening the emergency prevention measures, which he said is a battle to save lives.
The new order stipulates that every person is to remain confined to their home, including their yard, to avoid contact outside of their immediate family, and only leave the home for essential trips like grocery shopping or a doctor’s visit.
