Good evening all. It is just past eight o’clock and the Territory wide curfew is now in place and will remain in place until 6:00 a.m. on Thursday, 2 April. All of you should now be in your homes. And you should now not leave them until next Thursday.
Good afternoon. The spread of COVID-19 across the globe highlights that it is highly infectious and therefore it will remain a threat to the British Virgin Islands for the foreseeable future. This public health risk must be mitigated. Such a historic threat can only be managed by an unusually high level of cooperation, collaboration and solidarity.
