All employees of businesses not deemed essential services are asked to work from home over the curfew period Saturday, March 28, to Tuesday, April 14.
Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Dale Marshall, made the announcement on Friday night, in light of concerns raised by some segments of the society.
He said although those businesses would be closed over the next few weeks, there will be those persons who can continue to work from their homes using the necessary technology, and therefore those businesses can continue to function virtually.
The Attorney General stressed that although there would be limited movement in the country, except for those providing essential and necessary services, it was not a time for people to be less productive.
He added that public officers whose presence in the office is not seen as essential to the present level of operations can work from home.
