The governor, who disclosed while briefing the media at the State House, Marina, however, noted that the curfew was still in full force.

He said: “The 10:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. curfew is still on. It is a national regulation and it was issued by the PTF (Presidential Task Force on COVID-19). We will be having a discussion with the PTF during the week and if we have additional information, we will be passing across.
