Several social activities remain restricted as the government continues to work to protect citizens and residents from the spread of the Coronavirus.
“While some businesses can operate during the limited operation days, there remain restrictions on some social activities, as well as religious and educational institutions. All religious and educational places of instructions or worship shall remain closed,” Superintendent Cromwell Henry of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force stated.
However, in relation to Funerals and Weddings according to the SRO No. 7 of 2020 Emergency Powers (CoVID-19) Regulations, 2020, Restriction on Social Activities, Section 9 (c) no person shall host or attend “a wedding which hosts ten or more persons other than the bride, bridegroom, officials witnesses and the marriage officer.”
Section 9 (f) states that no person shall host or attend “a funeral, except 10 members of the immediate family and at least one officiant and essential mortuary”.
According to Superintendent Henry, the duration of the Wedding “should be one-half hour” and are to observe social distancing protocols.
That’s Superintendent Lyndon David.
Mr. David was at the time speaking during Monday’s CoVID-19 briefing, here on Nevis.
Superintendent David, who is also a part of Nevis’ CoVID-19 Task Force, added that there is still a restriction on social activities.
