Covid-19: Extension of the curfew in Saint-Martin from 20 p.m. to 3 a.m. until Thursday, June 17


Faced with the number of new cases of Covid-19 still high, the Prefect, Serge Gouteyron decided to extend the curfew until June 17.

As a reminder, the latest health bulletin published by Public Health France reports 111 new cases for the period from May 31 to June 6. Since May 20, 7 people have died (including 4 last week) and 13 medical evacuations to the CHU de Guadeloupe have been carried out. As of June 11, 10 people are hospitalized at Louis-Constant Fleming Hospital.

Because of these elements, the Prefect decided to extend the curfew until Thursday, June 17 at 3 a.m. This will be effective from 20 p.m. to 3 a.m. Only people with a certificate1 and additional supporting documents will be allowed to travel during this period. Gendarmerie checks will be carried out.

The decline in indicators has started, but it is still too low. In addition, the risk of saturation of the hospital system and the significant occupation of the Covid unit of the hospital, require that the measures in force since Sunday, May 30 be extended. Consequently, all establishments open to the public will have to close at 20 p.m. and gatherings of people are prohibited until Thursday, June 17.

A press conference will be held on Monday June 14 by the Prefect on the evolution of the health situation and the measures implemented.

The Prefect recalls that everyone's mobilization is necessary to fight the epidemic, and that vaccination, respect for barrier gestures, social distancing, wearing a mask and limiting gatherings of people are the most effective means to achieve it.
