The wearing of a mask in this COVID-19 era will be more than a ‘new regular’ in the Virgin Islands- it will be required by law.
This is according to Premier and Minister of Finance, Honourable Andrew A. Fahie (R1), speaking after the simulation exercise for the proposed re-routing of traffic in Road Town, Tortola, today, Friday, May 1, 2020.
According to the Premier, the COVID-19 pandemic presents a trying time for the Territory and “we have to understand there are certain things that have to be done in order for our economy, in order for our traffic to flow.”
He said some of those areas involve doing new things, “new things with the social distancing that will allows us to be able to live with COVID-19 until a vaccine is found, the six feet distancing, the wearing of a mask, which will become law very soon, the washing of the hands.
“But also we have to continue the running of the country.”
Embrace what you don’t know, especially in the beginning, because what you don’t know can become your greatest asset. It ensures that you will absolutely be doing things different from everybody else.
