Commissioner of Police Chester Williams issued an update this morning, noting that 128 people were arrested for failing to wear a cloth mask or other face (mouth) covering whilst in public. Another 52 were arrested for breaching curfew, seven people were arrested for failing to practice social distancing, and a preacher was arrested for having more people in the church than currently allowed by the SOE.
