Deterioration of the health situation: The Prefect establishes a curfew from 20 p.m. to 6 a.m. until June 9, 2021


The deteriorating health situation and three deaths deplored in part French this week pushed the prefect to toughen the measures to fight against Covid-19: he announced this Thursday, May 27 at a press conference the implementation a curfew from 20 p.m. to 6 a.m. every day (including weekends) until June 9, when the government must lift the measure to travel with compelling reasons. If the number of cases is still high on June 9, the lifting of compelling reasons may be postponed.

Since Sunday, people who have to travel after 20 p.m. will have to present a medical or professional reason. They must complete a certificate (available on the site of the prefecture) and present it to the gendarmes in the event of an inspection. The police are in particular placed at the four border points to control motorists "without closing the borders," he said.

With this measure, the prefect hopes to be able to reverse the contaminations curve and encourage the population to go for vaccination. “There are no clusters, which means that the virus is circulating massively on the territory, that it is not concentrated. There is too much excess, ”he comments. “To date, there are eight people who are hospitalized in Saint-Martin. The two people who died this week were aged 88 and 51, ”he adds. As for the patient, he is a Saint-Martinois who had been evacuated to Guadeloupe. This brings the number of deaths in the French part to 17.
