Enforcement of $500 EC penalty for not wearing masks in public spaces

Enforcement of $500 EC penalty for not wearing masks in public spaces

On Saturday August 8th 2020, the new Statutory Rules and Orders (SRO) Emergency Powers (COVID-19) No. 13 Regulations, came into operation at 5 am and its refers to a fixed penalty notice of $500 EC for those caught in public spaces without a mask. Exception has been given to children under the age of 3.

Considering the notice, should the public expect an increase in police presence to reinforce this rule?

The VONNEWSLINE posed this question to Member of Nevis’ COVID-19 Task Force, Superintendent, Mr. Lyndon David, during Monday’s COVID-19 briefing here on Nevis.
