Basseterre, Thursday, 17th June 2021, (MyVue News.com)-It is already a dry spell in St. Kitts &Nevis, with the hot summer months and little rain, but it just got even drier, at least for some folks, whose thirst would have to go unquenched, unless they are able to satisfy their alcoholic desires in the comfort of their homes.
All bars and restaurants are closed, and no alcohol is to be sold, declared the government in new COVID-19 restrictions.
This is just part of the strategy to employ every available tool to stop the escalation in COVID-19 cases in St. Kitts & Nevis. The overall effort is to reduce the chances of people to people contact, especially mass gatherings, over a lengthy period.
When that is achieved, the opportunities for the transfer of the virus, would diminish.
One new measure introduced this week is the temporary ban on the retail sale of all alcohol in the country. This has been facilitated by the suspension of all liquor licenses, in St. Kitts, as well as Nevis, as stated in the new Statutory Rules & Orders, issued on Tuesday, 15th June 2021.
These new restrictions will be in effect until, 26th June 2021.
With all bars and restaurants in the country ordered shut, they are only allowed to provide delivery or pick-up services.
