  • Curfew hours have been shortened as follows:
    • Sunday to Thursday – 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
    • Friday & Saturday – 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
  • Children under the age of 16 MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian after 6:00 p.m.

      • NOTE: If your Government issued trade license dictates that you close before 9:00 p.m. on a Friday or Saturday then your business should be closed at the time your trade license stipulates. If the trade license dictates that your business closes at 8:00 p.m. then you are to close your business at 8:00 p.m. If the trade license dictates that your business closes at 12:00 midnight, then you are to close your business at 9:00 p.m.
